Sources:

Non-current-payment benefits other than AERO shown earlier.

Historical AERO benefits from unpublished monthly report generated at time of AERO computer run; future AERO benefits projected based on historical trend and judgment, taking into account length of time from end of year of earnings to point of recomputation.

Historical ratios and amounts of non-current-payment benefits by type of beneficiary prepared by the Office of the Chief Actuary. Future ratios projected based on historical trend and judgment. Future amounts computed by applying corresponding ratio to total amount for retired workers and dependents.

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