How is the reduction amount computed?

727. How is the reduction amount computed?

How your reduction amount is computed depends upon whether you are entitled only to: (1) a retirement insurance benefit, (2) a wife's or husband's insurance benefit, (3) a widow(er)'s insurance benefit, or (4) a disability insurance benefit. If you are entitled to a combination of benefits, the time at which you become entitled to each benefit can affect the method of figuring the reduction amount.
