The increased lost earnings benefits for accidents occurring on and after February 20th 1980 reflects the ruling by the New York State Court of Appeals in the case KURCSICS v. Merchants Mutual Insurance Company, 49 N.Y. 2d 451 as implemented by the Fourteenth Amendment to Regulation No. 68 (11NYCRR 65.15(n)(2)([A> B <A])([A> 2 <A]).

Very truly yours,
