RS 00605.530 Recomputation of DIB PIA

A. Policy - First Month of Entitlement after 1999

This section applies on all claims when the initial month of entitlement on the current claim is January 2000 or later. The existence of a prior claim with entitlement before 2000 is immaterial.

The DIB PIA is recomputed based on deemed age 62 in the first full month of the waiting period. The freeze period does not end until the NH attains deemed full retirement age (FRA). Any base years wholly within this period cannot be used unless the entire freeze period is disregarded for purposes of a DIB non-freeze recomputation. NOTE: FRA may be any age from 65 – 67 depending on the date of birth. See RS 00615.003 for FRA information.

Example:

A person born in 1962 has a disability onset of 12/15/1999. The first month of the waiting period (deemed age 62) is 1/2000. FRA for a person born in 1962 is 67. If the NH is deemed to be age 62 in 1/2000 then deemed age 67 (FRA) would occur in 1/2005. Years from 2000 through 2004 cannot be used in a disability exclusion computation because they are wholly within the period of disability.

B. Policy - First Month of Entitlement Before 2000

This section applies to men born 1/2/1913 or later and all women when the first month of entitlement on the current claim is before 2000. For men born before 1/2/1913 see RS 00605.530C.

The DIB PIA is recomputed based on deemed age 62 in the first full month of the waiting period. The freeze period does not end until the NH attains deemed age 65. Any base years wholly within this period cannot be used unless the entire freeze period is disregarded for purposes of a DIB non-freeze recomputation.

C. Policy - Men Born Before 1/2/1913 with First Month of Entitlement Before 2000

This section applies to men born before 1/2/1913 with a first month of entitlement on the current claim is before 2000.

The first month of the waiting period was deemed age 65. Therefore all years beginning with the year the waiting period occurred and all subsequent years can be considered base years and recomputations can be made.
