### MEMORANDUM NO. 2016-05

#### Calculating Weekly Benefit Amounts without FICA and/or Medicare Deductions

TO: | Commissioners, District Administrators, Advisory Board, Legal Advisory Panel, Self-Insureds, Insurance Carriers, Attorneys, and Unions |

FROM: | John A. Mastropietro, Chairman |

DATE: | September 29, 2016 |

RE: |
Calculating Weekly Benefit Amounts without FICA and/or Medicare Deductions |

In the event that a Commissioner decides that an employee is not subject to FICA and/or Medicare taxes, he or she may exclude the equivalent amount from deduction from gross pay to determine the compensation rate. Currently, such rates are not calculated by the system, nor are the formulae for determining them manually written anywhere - on the VA or elsewhere.

One method for calculating these amounts is by manually following the steps from the exhibits in the front of the rate table book, but omitting the FICA and/or Medicare deductions. Since this is rather involved, the Commission has come up with some "short cut" equations.
