RS 03001.700 Claims Involving Only Title II Rules
Claimants who apply after 1986 with no previous NMISSS eligibility must meet Title II rules for eligibility and benefit computations.
B. POLICY - COMPUTATION METHOD
Use Title II computation rules to determine the benefit amount.
C. POLICY - RECOMPUTATIONS USING NMISSS EARNINGS
A Title II beneficiary entitled effective 1/1/87 or later is entitled using all earnings from both NMISSS and SSA. There may be some Title II beneficiaries who were receiving Social Security benefits before 1987 based on Title II earnings only. If those beneficiaries also had NMISSS earnings they can receive a recomputation effective 1/1/87 to include all NMISSS earnings. Title II rules will continue to apply.
