When SSA has jurisdiction of a survivor claim, RR compensation not previously considered
wages while the NH was alive is added to the ER and used in computing survivor benefits
if the following requirements are met:
NH was entitled to a RIB or DIB; and
SSA has jurisdiction of any survivor claim.
If the PIA is a 1977 amendment or later PIA , the increase must be at least $1.00.
NOTE: The 1967 OS PIA is available for use in the RR recomputation even if there are no
earnings after 1965. The 1990 OS can only be used if some of the earnings are after
1992. The 1967 OS could still apply if the RR earnings are for earlier years and the
other requirements are met.
