RS 00615.500 Computing the Spouse's Benefit Reduction Factor Adjustment — Spouse also Entitled to RIB or DIB

A. POLICY

1. Entitled to Spouses Benefits ARF Before RIB or DIB Entitlement

Entitlement to RIB or DIB does not affect the ARF for the spouse benefit. The adjustment of the reduction factor for a spouse also entitled to RIB or DIB is the same as for an individual entitled only to spouse's benefits. See RS 00615.490.

2. RIB/DIB Concurrent or Preceding Spouse's Benefits

The adjusted spouse reduction factor is applied to the excess spouse's benefit.

B. PROCEDURE - CALCULATION

1. Unreduced B Excess

Unreduced B - A(HA) PIA = unreduced B excess.

2. ARF MBA

B excess reduced by ARF = ARF MBA.
