In calculating benefits of dependent child of disabled worker , family maximum cap does not reduce child's benefits by amount of spousal benefits to which worker's wife is entitled but which were never payable. Calculation of family maximum only includes benefits on worker's record that are payable. The plain meaning of a statute's text must be given effect unless it would produce an absurd result or one manifestly at odds with the statute's intended effect.
