(1)

The benefit factor under subdivision (d) of Section 75522 multiplied by the judge’s final compensation on the effective date of the disability retirement, multiplied by the number of years of service the judge would have been credited if the judge’s service had continued to the age the judge would have first been eligible to retire under subdivision (a) of Section 75522.
