Beginning 1/1973, a $300 per calendar quarter DMW credit is provided for any quarter
after 1956 in which the NH received any amount of pay for active military service
(se RS 01701.002).
For those NHs receiving benefits prior to 1/1973, a recalculation under this section
was effective 1/1973 or the twelfth month prior to the month the recalculation request
was filed, whichever was later.
For entitlement in or after 1/1973, DMW credits are used in the initial computation.
When entitlement to a monthly benefit began in 11/1972 or 12/1972 a written request
was not needed. The recalculation was done automatically.
When entitlement to a monthly benefit began in 10/1972 or earlier a written request
for recalculation was required. NOTE: On these cases any subsequent application for
benefits is deemed to be a request for recalculation
If a request for a DMW recalculation is received follow normal rules to determine
if DMW credits are applicable.
If entitlement began in 11/1972 or later make the recalculation effective with the
first month of entitlement.
If the entitlement began before 11/1972 make the change 12 months prior to the date
of the request (or 1/1973 if later).
Complete a Form SSA-795 (Statement of Claimant or Other Person) showing pertinent
information such as branch of service, serial number and dates of service. Have the
SSA-795 signed by NH or proper applicant.
Obtain proof of military service.
A certified ER is not needed if the computation using SEQY, DEQY, POS, EC or ICF earnings
matches the PIA shown on the MBR.
If the military service increases the PIA process the recalculation.
