RS 00605.900 List of RAW PIA and Family Maximum Computations

Policy

Beginning with eligibility in 1979, PIAs are based on the average indexed monthly earnings (AIME). Family maximums for retirement and survivor claims are computed based on the PIA. Family maximums for disability claims with eligibility in 1979 or later and entitlement before July 1980 are also based on the PIA. See RS 00615.742 for rules on computing the family maximums on disability claims with initial entitlement after June 1980. Bend points are used to derive the PIA from the AIME and the family maximum from the PIA. A different set of bend points is established each year. The PIA and family maximum bend points from 1979 on shown in the following chart:
