__Description of Proposed Provision__:

E2.3: Eliminate the taxable maximum in years 2018 and later, and apply full 12.4 percent payroll tax rate to all earnings. Provide benefit credit for earnings above the current-law taxable maximum. Create a new bend point at the current-law taxable maximum with a 3 percent formula factor applying above the new bend point.

*Estimates based on the intermediate assumptions
of the 2017 Trustees Report*
