__Description of Proposed Provision__:

A9: For single/head-of-household/married-filing-separate taxpayers with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) below $87,200 and for joint filers with MAGI below $174,400 for December 2019 ($85,000 and $170,000 multiplied by estimated CPI-U for 2019), use the chain-weighted version of the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) to calculate the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), beginning with the December 2019 COLA. For those beneficiaries whose MAGI is above these thresholds, provide no COLA. Use prior tax year income data for this determination. Index the eligibility income threshold amounts to the CPI-U after December 2019.

*Estimates based on the intermediate assumptions
