## Summary Measures and Graphs

__Description of Proposed Provision__:

B1.4: Progressive price indexing (50th percentile) of PIA factors beginning with individuals newly eligible for OASDI benefits in 2028: Create a new bend point at the 50th percentile of the AIME distribution of newly retired workers. Maintain current-law benefits for earners at the 50th percentile and below. Reduce the 32 and 15 percent factors above the 50th percentile such that the initial benefit for a worker with AIME equal to the taxable maximum grows by inflation rather than the growth in the SSA average wage index.
