Payment Calculation Bases

Automatic Increases

One of the Social Security Administration's (SSA) priorities is to assist individuals with disabilities achieve independence by helping them to take advantage of employment opportunities. As part of that effort, SSA pays providers of rehabilitation services under certain circumstances. Such payments are based on program-specific values referred to as Payment Calculation Bases.

SSA's Office of the Chief Actuary determines the Payment Calculation Bases for Title II and Title XVI of the Social Security Act, in accordance with the provisions of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999. These bases are defined more specifically in section 411.500 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
