A reason to support your favorite US based writers & freelancers monetarily: Social Security work credits.

To claim Social Security, you need 40 work credits, and you can get up to 4 per year. Each credit requires you to earn at least $1300 in that quarter.

(Short thread)
When we get a lump sum advance? That’s still just one credit, no matter how much that check is written for. Until we start earning royalties, we may only make one credit per year, if we’re lucky (especially if we don’t have a day job due to other factors like disability.)
(BTW: this also applies to a lot of freelance workers, including researchers.)

Making sure your favorite indie artist has to pay taxes every single quarter ensures their future safety net against serious poverty. Please make us pay taxes!

Thank you!
