I am working on a project in which i have to use Classes and do multiple things with different sorts of data. The basic question i have though is this: what am i doing wrong here in terms of this class declaration etc...i get ton of errors and cant seem to find anything to help. Please let me know how i could fix this to work it .

Your help is always appreicated!

line 69: getSSN is not a function. Look it in the class declaration -- you forgot to add the () parentheses so all you have there is a pointer. Same with getSalary().

line 114: yearsEmployed does not exist. Check the spelling.

Now look at the remaining errors one at a time, then see if you can find what's wrong. After correcting it recompile to remove residual errors that were caused by the error you just corrected. With a little practice you will learn what those error messages mean and how to correct them.
