SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTE: Award actions are processed not only for new beneficiaries but also for persons already on the rolls whose benefits in one category are terminated but who become entitled to another type of benefit. These actions are called conversions. Benefit conversions are included in the data, except for conversions of benefits for children of retired workers to benefits for children of deceased workers upon the death of the worker.
a. Includes special age-72 beneficiaries.
Excludes a number of Railroad Retirement beneficiaries who would have been eligible for Social Security benefits had they applied. The reason they have not applied is that receipt of a Social Security benefit would reduce their Railroad Retirement benefit by a like amount. The number of Railroad Retirement beneficiaries who would be eligible for a Social Security benefit if they applied is not available, but is estimated to be less than 100,000.
b. Benefits paid from the OASI trust fund to retired workers and their spouses and children and to all survivors.
c. Benefits paid from the DI trust fund to disabled workers and their spouses and children.
