The DWB modification in the 1983 amendments affects all benefits whenever the additional
reduction percentage previously applied.
Constant reduction factor method - Recalculate ARF using a constant RF multiplied
by 19/40 of 1 percent.
Formula method for widow(er)'s who were entitled to DWB and became 60 prior to 1/78

Recalculate these benefits using separate reduction of increases RS 00630.100. Then apply formula method for increases from 1/78 - 12/83. Do not count months between
age 50 and age 60 as reduction months.
