## Summary Measures and Graphs

__Description of Proposed Provision__:

B5.11: Beginning for those newly eligible in 2025, reconfigure the special minimum benefit: (a) The number of years of work (YOWs) is determined as total quarters of coverage divided by 4, ignoring any fraction. Childcare years are granted to parents who have a child under 6, with a limit of 5 such years. (b) For beneficiaries becoming newly eligible in 2025, set the initial special minimum benefit for 30+ YOWs equal to 100 percent of the monthly HHS poverty level for 2024. For beneficiaries becoming newly eligible after 2025, the initial special minimum benefit is indexed by the AWI. For workers between 11 and 29 YOWs, reduce the special minimum by 3 1/3 percentage points per YOW so that at 29 YOWs the minimum would be 96 2/3% of poverty, ..., down to 11 YOWs at 36 2/3% of poverty. No minimum for 10 or fewer YOWs.
