Notice to Beneficiary of Non-Increase of Frozen Minimum PIA

 

The social security benefits to which you are entitled are based on a minimum monthly benefit. This provides for a higher benefit amount than the amount figured under the regular methods.

 

Since you are not yet 65 and will not be 65 this year, a cost-of-living increase cannot be applied to your benefits until a change in your work status permits payment of your monthly social security benefits.

 

*If you believe that this determination is not correct, you may request that your case be reexamined. If you want this reconsideration, you must request it not later than 60 days from the date you receive this notice. You may make any such request through social office. If additional evidence is available, you should submit it with your request.

 

*If you have any questions about your claim, you may get in touch with any social security office. Most questions can be handled by telephone or mail. If you visit an office however, please take this letter with you.
