TN 6 (04-12)
An automatic recalculation of the primary insurance amount (PIA) includes RR compensation
for a number holder (NH) who meets all of the following:
was not a RR annuitant;
does not have 120 service months;
was entitled to retirement insurance benefits (RIB) before 11/1951; and
lived throughout 11/1951.
A RR recalculation does not require an application in a life or a death case.
Increases are payable beginning 11/1951 for the NH or for survivors and for a lump
sum (LS) payment.
Compute or recompute under the rules in RS 00620.071 when:
the NH dies after 08/1950 and before 12/1951; and
we did not previously consider RR compensation.
Reopen the last computation or recalculation and include RR compensation to determine
the PIA for months beginning 11/1951. RR compensation is creditable for quarters of
coverage (QC) purposes and establishes increment years.
