Proposed Provision: Beginning for those newly eligible in 2023, reconfigure the special minimum benefit: (a) A year of coverage is defined as a year in which 4 quarters of coverage are earned. (b) At implementation, set the PIA for 30 years of coverage equal to 125 percent of the monthly poverty level (about $1,226 in 2015). For those with under 30 years of coverage, the PIA per year of coverage over 10 years is $1,226/20 = $61.30. (c) From 2015 to the year of implementation, 2023, index the PIA per year of coverage using the chain-CPI index. Then, for later years, index the PIA per year of coverage by wage growth for successive cohorts. (d) Scale work requirements for disabled workers, based on the number of years of non-disabled potential work.
