A. Calculating initial entitlement before 01/1978 and after 12/1977

1. Benefit increases before 01/1978

Before 01/1978, we apply the separate increase method to each benefit or excess benefit for all calculations of subsequent increases due to:

  • recomputations,

  • general benefit increases, or

  • cost of living allowances (COLAs. (For information on the separate increase method, refer to RS 00630.100.)

2. Benefit increases after 12/1977

All calculations of subsequent increases due to recomputations, general benefit increases, or COLAs effective after 12/1977 use the formula method found in RS 00605.021.

B. Calculating COLA increases for benefit types

For calculating increases after 1977, refer to RS 00615.160.
