Sources:

Historical numbers of beneficiaries withheld computed as number in force minus number in current-payment status; future numbers of beneficiaries withheld computed by applying applicable percentage to number of beneficiaries in force.

Historical percentages of disabled widows computed by dividing number withheld by number in force; future percentages for each age group projected to remain at last known rate (June or December).

Note: Future estimates based on 2001 Trustees Report intermediate set of assumptions.
