SECTION 355
Community College Optional Retirement Program and State University System Optional Retirement Program member transfer.
F.S. 121.355
121.355 Community College Optional Retirement Program and State University System Optional Retirement Program member transfer.Effective January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009, an employee who is a former participant in the Community College Optional Retirement Program or the State University System Optional Retirement Program and present mandatory participant in the Florida Retirement System defined benefit plan may receive service credit equal to his or her years of service under the Community College Optional Retirement Program or the State University System Optional Retirement Program under the following conditions:
(1) The cost for such credit shall be an amount representing the actuarial accrued liability for the affected period of service. The cost shall be calculated using the discount rate and other relevant actuarial assumptions that were used to value the Florida Retirement System defined benefit plan liabilities in the most recent actuarial valuation. The calculation shall include any service already maintained under the defined benefit plan in addition to the years under the Community College Optional Retirement Program or the State University System Optional Retirement Program. The actuarial accrued liability of any service already maintained under the defined benefit plan shall be applied as a credit to total cost resulting from the calculation. The division shall ensure that the transfer sum is prepared using a formula and methodology certified by an enrolled actuary.
(2) The employee must transfer from his or her Community College Optional Retirement Program account or State University System Optional Retirement Program account, subject to the terms of the applicable optional retirement program contract, and from other employee moneys as necessary, a sum representing the actuarial accrued liability immediately following the time of such movement, determined assuming that attained service equals the sum of service in the defined benefit program and service in the Community College Optional Retirement Program or State University System Optional Retirement Program.
(3) The employee may not receive service credit for a period of mandatory participation in the State University Optional Retirement Program or for a period for which a distribution was received from the Community College Optional Retirement Program or State University System Optional Retirement Program.
