__Description of Proposed Provision__:

E2.15: Apply OASDI payroll tax rate on earnings above $300,000 starting in 2019, and tax all earnings once the current-law taxable maximum exceeds $300,000. Provide benefit credit for earnings above the current-law taxable maximum that are subject to the payroll tax, using a secondary PIA formula. This secondary PIA formula involves: (1) an "AIME+" derived from annual earnings from each year after 2018 that were in excess of that year's current-law taxable maximum; and (2) a formula factor of 3 percent on this newly computed "AIME+".

*Estimates based on the intermediate assumptions
