## Summary Measures and Graphs

__Description of Proposed Provision__:

E2.14: Apply OASDI 12.4 percent payroll tax rate on earnings above $250,000 starting in 2026, and tax all earnings once the current-law taxable maximum exceeds $250,000. 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 2025 that were in excess of that year's current-law taxable maximum; and (2) a formula factor of 2 percent on this newly computed "AIME+".
