If a disability family maximum is applicable (see RS 00615.740), establish the maximum as the lesser of:
150% of the raw pro rata PIA, or
85% of an artificial average indexed monthly earnings (AIME) that would produce a
PIA equal to the raw pro rata PIA.
Exception: If the amount established above is less than the pro rata PIA, the disability family
maximum will be the pro rata PIA.
Apply cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) to disability family maximums unless a recomputation
is involved. If a recomputation is involved, determine the new raw family maximum
and apply COLAs to the new raw family maximum.
