70 Years Ago
Wage-Earners without numbers should make application at once

Wage-earners of Tennessee who have failed to obtain social security numbers are putting an unnecessary burden on themselves and may delay the prompt handling of their claims for unemployment benefits, F. G. Scott , Director of the unemployment compensation division pointed out today in another appeal to all to make application for numbers at once.

All credits for wages earned in covered employment should be made to social security numbers, but when numbers are not reported they are made in the names of persons for whom the reports were made. If two or more persons have the same name, credits may not be given to the proper persons. This may result in delay in paying on claims for benefits or may prevent a correct computation of amounts due.

Workers covered by unemployment compensation should immediately provide Social Security Account Numbers. This applies to persons over 65 years of age as well as those in the younger age brackets, Mr. Scott pointed out.

Numbers may be obtained through any field office of the Social Security Board.

America’s social security program will be outlined in three addresses over the national hook up of the Columbia Broadcasting System today. An invitation has been extended all citizens of Tennessee who are interested in unemployment compensation to tune in any CBS station for this program.
