Summary Measures and Graphs

Description of Proposed Provision:
B3.13: For retired worker beneficiaries newly eligible in 2024 (excluding disabled workers), add a new bend point at the wage-indexed equivalent of the 50th percentile of the AIME distribution minus $100 (for 2015 eligibility) and change the PIA factors to 95/32/15/5. Also move the current-law first bend point from the wage-indexed equivalent of $885 in 2017 to $1,125 in 2017. Phase this provision in over 10 years (2024-2033). The phase-in would work on a weighted-average basis: 90% of CL formula + 10% of proposal formula for 2024, 80% of CL formula + 20% of proposal formula for 2025, and so on.

Estimates based on the intermediate assumptions of the 2017 Trustees Report
