Proposed Provision: Beginning for those newly eligible in 2017, reconfigure the special minimum benefit: (a) A year of coverage is defined to be either a year in which 4 quarters of coverage are earned or a child is in care. Childcare years are granted to parents who have a child under 6, with a limit of 5 such years. (b) At implementation, set the PIA for 30 years of coverage equal to 100 percent of the monthly poverty level (about $990 in 2016). For those with under 30 years of coverage, the PIA per year of coverage over 10 years is $990/20 = $49.50. (c) From 2016 to the year of implementation, 2017, index the PIA per year of coverage using the 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.
