Ask Rusty – Will Foreign Earnings Count toward my U.S. Social Security?

Social Security Matters

Dear Rusty: I am looking for advice on how our recent decision to take up work in the United Kingdom will affect our U.S. Social Security benefits. I want to understand whether we need to be prepared for a loss in future Social Security benefits, in comparison to what we’d get by continuing to work in the U.S. Signed: Working Abroad

Dear Working Abroad: I’ll start by noting that the U.S. and the U.K. have a bilateral “totalization” agreement which helps those who have worked in both countries qualify for Social Security benefits in the other, but this relates only to you earning enough credits to be eligible for benefits. Your foreign earned income won’t be included when computing your U.S. Social Security benefits.

Patchwork

This was the year that I was going to cut back. Honestly, I thought I had trimmed the number of gifts for my family.

Paul and Lexie were the first to arrive, prior to Christmas. I had wrapped their gifts and they were under the tree.

“Mom,” Paul said. “I thought you were cutting back.”

I thought I had, but they disagreed with me, as they opened their gifts.

After defeating Kentwood 17-14 at home on Friday, November 6 in the semi-final of the LHSAA state playoffs, Many will travel to the Mercedes Benz Super Dome in New Orleans this weekend where they will take on Ferriday at 3:30 p.m. on December 13.

This New Orleans visit marks the first once since the 2014 defeat of Kinder for the football program’s first state championship. Since the Tigers have had great success by reaching the semi-finals of the playoffs multiple years running, but have not matched the success of that year.

Kentwood received the ball to open the semi-final game after Many deferred after winning the coin toss. Roy Miller made sure that the first Kangaroo possession of the game came to nothing, after dropping the quarterback after a slip in the back field before being joined by Tackett Curtis for another big tackle to put Kentwood even further back behind in yards.
