The balance to the credit of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance (RUI) Account, as of June 30, 2019, is $157,488,983.12; 2. The September 30, 2019, balance of any new loans to the RUI Account, including accrued interest, is zero; 3. The system compensation base is $4,207,873,508.12 as of June 30, 2019; 4. The cumulative system unallocated charge balance is ($443,788,751.14) as of June 30, 2019; 5. The pooled credit ratio for calendar year 2020 is zero; 6. The pooled charged ratio for calendar year 2020 is zero; 7. The surcharge rate for calendar year 2020 is zero; 8. The monthly compensation base under section 1(i) of the Act is $1,655 for months in calendar year 2020; 9. The amount described in sections 1(k) and 3 of the Act as ‘‘2.5 times the monthly compensation base’’ is $4,137.50 for base year (calendar year) 2020; 10. The amount described in section 4(a–2)(i)(A) of the Act as ‘‘2.5 times the monthly compensation base’’ is $4,137.50 with respect to disqualifications ending in calendar year 2020; 11. The amount described in section 2(c) of the Act as ‘‘an amount that bears the same ratio to $775 as the monthly compensation base for that year as computed under section 1(i) of this Act bears to $600’’ is $2,138 for months in calendar year 2020; 12. The maximum daily benefit rate under section 2(a)(3) of the Act is $80 with respect to days of unemployment and days of sickness in registration periods beginning after June 30, 2020. PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66027 Surcharge Rate A surcharge is added in the calculation of each employer’s contribution rate, subject to the applicable maximum rate, for a calendar year whenever the balance to the credit of the RUI Account on the preceding June 30 is less than the greater of $100 million or the amount that bears the same ratio to $100 million as the system compensation base for that June 30 bears to the system compensation base as of June 30, 1991. If the RUI Account balance is less than $100 million (as indexed), but at least $50 million (as indexed), the surcharge will be 1.5 percent. If the RUI Account balance is less than $50 million (as indexed), but greater than zero, the surcharge will be 2.5 percent. The maximum surcharge of 3.5 percent applies if the RUI Account balance is less than zero. The ratio of the June 30, 2019 system compensation base of $4,207,873,508.12 to the June 30, 1991 system compensation base of $2,763,287,237.04 is 1.52277818. Multiplying 1.52277818 by $100 million yields $152,277,818.00. Multiplying $50 million by 1.52277818 produces $76,138,909.00. The Account balance on June 30, 2019, was $157,488,983.12. Accordingly, the surcharge rate for calendar year 2020 is zero. Monthly Compensation Base For years after 1988, section 1(i) of the Act contains a formula for determining the monthly compensation base. Under the prescribed formula, the monthly compensation base increases by approximately two-thirds of the cumulative growth in average national wages since 1984. The monthly compensation base for months in calendar year 2020 shall be equal to the greater of (a) $600 or (b) $600 [1 + {(A— 37,800)/56,700}], where A equals the amount of the applicable base with respect to tier 1 taxes for 2020 under section 3231(e)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Section 1(i) further provides that if the amount so determined is not a multiple of $5, it shall be rounded to the nearest multiple of $5. Using the calendar year 2020 tier 1 tax base of $137,700 for A above produces the amount of $1,657.14, which must then be rounded to $1,655. Accordingly, the monthly compensation base is determined to be $1,655 for months in calendar year 2020. Amounts Related to Changes in Monthly Compensation Base For years after 1988, sections 1(k), 3, 4(a–2)(i)(A) and 2(c) of the Act contain E:\FR\FM\02DEN1.SGM 02DEN1
