To be considered a trial work period month, earnings must be over a certain level. In 2020, any month in which earnings exceed $910 is considered a month of services for an individual’s trial work period. Computation The method used to determine the new amount is set forth in our regulations at 20 CFR 404.1592(b). Monthly earnings in 2020, used to determine whether a month is part of a trial work period, is the larger of: (1) The amount for 2001 ($530) multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 to that for 1999; or (2) the amount for 2019. If the resulting amount is not a multiple of $10, we round it to the nearest multiple of $10. Trial Work Period Earnings Threshold Amount Multiplying the 2001 monthly earnings threshold ($530) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 ($52,145.80) to that for 1999 ($30,469.84) produces $907.04. We then round this amount to $910. Because $910 exceeds the current amount of $880, the monthly earnings threshold is $910 for 2020. Domestic Employee Coverage Threshold General The minimum amount a domestic worker must earn so that such earnings are covered under Social Security or Medicare is the domestic employee coverage threshold. For 2020, this threshold is $2,200. Section 3121(x) of the Internal Revenue Code provides the formula for increasing the threshold. Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold General The minimum amount an election official and election worker must earn so the earnings are covered under Social Security or Medicare is the election official and election worker coverage threshold. For 2020, this threshold is $1,900. Section 218(c)(8)(B) of the Act provides the formula for increasing the threshold. Computation Under the formula, the election official and election worker coverage threshold for 2020 is equal to the 1999 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 to that for 1997. If the amount we determine is not a multiple of $100, it we round it to the nearest multiple of $100. Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1999 coverage threshold amount ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 ($52,145.80) to that for 1997 ($27,426.00) produces $1,901.33. We then round this amount to $1,900. Therefore, the election official and election worker coverage threshold amount is $1,900 for 2020.

[FR Doc. 2019–22921 Filed 10–21–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE P Computation Under the formula, the domestic employee coverage threshold for 2020 is equal to the 1995 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 to that for 1993. If the resulting amount is not a multiple of $100, we round it to the next lower multiple of $100. Domestic Employee Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1995 domestic employee coverage threshold ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2018 ($52,145.80) to that for 1993 ($23,132.67) produces $2,254.21. We then round this amount to $2,200. Therefore, the domestic employee coverage threshold amount is $2,200 for 2020.

The Clearinghouse will collect and maintain records on the completion of substance abuse programs as part of the return-toduty process and will collect and maintain drivers’ consent to the release of information. In addition, the Clearinghouse will collect and maintain records of queries of the system conducted by employers or service agents acting on their behalf, and State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs).
