1 This benefit was not payable until March 19, 1975.

2 Fewer than 50.

3 This rate is not meaningful for this year because the number in current-payment status at midpoint of the year is not representative of the number in current-payment status during the year.

Sources:

Number and average benefit in current-payment status at midpoint of period computed from corresponding figures shown earlier for number and average benefit in current-payment status at end of period.

Historical rate computed by dividing amount during period by product of number and average benefit in current-payment status at midpoint of period. Future rates projected based on historical trend.

Historical amount from 1-A Table Current-Payment Supplement; future amounts computed by applying rate to number and average benefit in current-payment status at midpoint of period.

Total amount computed by addition of male and female amounts.

Note: Future estimates based on 2001 Trustees Report intermediate set of assumptions.
