## Summary Measures and Graphs

__Description of Proposed Provision__:

E3.16: Beginning in 2026, apply 4 percent payroll tax rate on earnings above the wage-indexed equivalent of $400,000 in 2015 (about $612,900 in 2026), with the threshold wage-indexed after 2026. Provide benefit credit for additional earnings taxed, using a secondary PIA formula. This secondary PIA formula involves: (1) an "AIME+" derived from annual earnings taxed only between 2015 wage-indexed equivalents of $400,000 and $500,000, or about $612,900 and $766,200 in 2026 (with thresholds wage-indexed after 2026); and (2) a formula factor of 2 percent on this newly computed "AIME+".
