B. Procedure

1. Determining the Transitional PIA

  1. Determine elapsed years, computation years, and divisor months. see RS 00605.016 ff.

  2. Determine base years. (Years after 1950 and up to, but not including, the year of eligibility.) see RS 00605.017.

  3. Compute the dividend using actual earnings.

  4. Determine a PIA using the 6/78 PIA tables in RS 00605.950.

  5. Years wholly within a period of disability are excluded when an exclusion computation is advantageous.

  6. Add COLAs for ELY and later.

2. Recomputation

The law prohibits the recomputation of the 78 NS Transitional Guarantee PIA to include earnings in or after the year of eligibility. Additional earnings may be used to increase the PIA under the 78 NS AIME PIA or the special minimum only. Add cost-of-living increases beginning with the eligibility year.
