RS 00615.758 Adjusting Benefits for the Family Maximum (FMAX) When the Family Composition Changes
When the benefits of those entitled on an SSN have been adjusted for the maximum:
The family maximum must be reapportioned among those who remain entitled to benefits after the family composition changes.
1. Unreduced Benefits
Reapportionment is accomplished by adjusting the benefit amounts for the new family composition per RS 00615.756.
2. Reduced Benefits - Months Before 1/78
Refigure rates from the first MOET to the reduced benefit to the month for which the rate is calculated.
The reduced benefit is recalculated from the first MOET as if the new family composition had always existed.
3. Reduced Benefits - Months After 12/77
a. Entitlement Began 1/78 or Later
b. Entitlement Began Before 1/78
Apply a formula against the current money amount of reduction
CMAR x NUR = NMAR
CMAR is the amount of reduction before the change
CUR is the current rate before the change
NUR is the new rate before the reduction
NMAR is the amount of reduction after the change.
