Normally ICF programs 19 and 24 (MSOM ICFT2 019.001 and MSOM ICFT2 024.001) can be used to index earnings, even when it cannot compute the correct PIA. In some
cases manual indexing may be desirable. For example, a beneficiary may ask to see
how earnings are indexed on his or her record. When it is necessary to index earnings
manually use the charts in the following section. Determine the applicable eligibility
year and use the chart for that year. Round indexed earnings to the nearest cent by
dropping everything after the third decimal. If the third decimal is 5 or more round
up. If the third decimal is 4 or less round down. For example, an amount of 3,457.765
is rounded to 3,457.77 while 3,457.764 is rounded to 3,457.76.
