SSASIM input table RBEN_DI

Contains information about relative average initial DI benefit levels by age and gender.

Parent table is: BDYN_DI

There are no child tables.

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   RBEN_DI . id
Identifies id of rows that contain relative average initial DI benefit levels for females and males of various ages, where levels are measured relative to economy-wide average earnings. There is a different row for each age, so many rows have the same id value.

Valid values: 0 to 999999999 (nine digits), Integer

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   RBEN_DI . notes
Describes specification of table row in free-form note.

Valid values: any ASCII text (Note: do not copy and paste from a word processor because of the possibility of embedded non-ASCII characters.)

Source code: notes are not read by the model

SSASIM:   RBEN_DI . age
Specifies age of females and males whose relative average initial DI benefit levels are specified on this row.

Valid values: 0 to convertage_yr-1, Integer [where convertage_yr is equal to convertage parameter in BDYN_DI table for simulation year that corresponds to this row's id value]

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   RBEN_DI . female
Specifies average initial DI benefit level for females of this age as a percentage ratio (not a decimal fraction) of economy-wide average earnings. Value is zero for an age that does not have a row.

Valid values: any non-negative value, Real

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   RBEN_DI . male
Specifies average initial DI benefit level for males of this age as a percentage ratio (not a decimal fraction) of economy-wide average earnings. Value is zero for an age that does not have a row.

Valid values: any non-negative value, Real

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp
