F.S. 121.052
121.052 Membership class of elected officers.
(1) ESTABLISHMENT OF CLASS.There is hereby established a separate class of members within the Florida Retirement System, which hereafter may be cited as the “Elected Officers’ Class.” Unless the context otherwise requires, any reference to said class shall also be construed as a reference to the Elected State Officers’ Class, as the same existed prior to July 3, 1990.
(2) MEMBERSHIP.The following holders of elective office, hereinafter referred to as “elected officers,” whether assuming elective office by election, reelection, or appointment, are members of the Elected Officers’ Class, except as provided in subsection (3):
(a) Any Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Cabinet officer, legislator, Supreme Court justice, district court of appeal judge, circuit judge, or state attorney assuming office on or after July 1, 1972.
(b) Any county court judge assuming office on or after October 1, 1974.
(c) Any public defender assuming office on or after July 1, 1977.
(d) Any constitutional county elected officer assuming office on or after July 1, 1981, including any sheriff, tax collector, property appraiser, supervisor of elections, clerk of the circuit court, county commissioner, school board member, or elected school board superintendent, or any elected officer of any entity with countywide jurisdiction assuming office on or after July 1, 1981, who, pursuant to general or special law, exercises powers and duties that, but for such general or special law, would be exercised by any of the constitutional county elected officers set forth in this paragraph, including the sheriff and clerk of the circuit court in a consolidated government with countywide jurisdiction unless such sheriff or clerk elected to continue to participate in a local retirement system.
(e) Any public service commissioner assuming office on or after July 1, 1972, but prior to July 1, 1979.
(f) Any elected officer of a municipality or special district assuming office on July 1, 1997, through June 30, 2009, as provided in paragraph (3)(e). On or after January 1, 2010, an elected officer shall become a member only if the governing body of the municipality or special district, at the time it joins the Florida Retirement System for its elected officers, elects, by majority vote, to include all its elected positions in the Elected Officers’ Class.
(3) PARTICIPATION AND WITHDRAWAL, GENERALLY.Effective July 1, 1990, participation in the Elected Officers’ Class shall be compulsory for elected officers listed in paragraphs (2)(a)-(d) and (f) assuming office on or after said date, unless the elected officer elects membership in another class or withdraws from the Florida Retirement System as provided in paragraphs (3)(a)-(d):
(a) Any elected officer who is or becomes dually employed and a member of the Florida Retirement System or one of the existing systems may elect membership in any system or class for which he or she is eligible. Upon becoming dually employed, the elected officer shall have a period of 6 months to notify the administrator of his or her decision, as provided in subsection (6).
(b) Upon assuming office, any sheriff shall have a period of 6 months to notify the administrator of his or her decision to remain or elect membership in the Special Risk Class in lieu of membership in the Elected Officers’ Class.
(c) Any elected officer may, within 6 months after assuming office, or within 6 months after this act becomes a law for serving elected officers, elect membership in the Senior Management Service Class as provided in s. 121.055 in lieu of membership in the Elected Officers’ Class. Any such election made by a county elected officer shall have no effect upon the statutory limit on the number of nonelective full-time positions that may be designated by a local agency employer for inclusion in the Senior Management Service Class under s. 121.055(1)(b)1.
(d)1. Any elected officer may elect to withdraw from participating in the Florida Retirement System in any manner whatsoever. Upon assuming office, the member shall have a period of 6 months to notify the administrator of his or her decision to withdraw from the Florida Retirement System altogether. Such election shall be made in writing and a copy shall be filed with the employer.
2. Upon receipt of a request from an elected officer to withdraw from the Florida Retirement System pursuant to subparagraph 1., the administrator shall refund all moneys contributed by the elected officer to the system during the period of participation in the system, unless the elected officer has a vested right under the Florida Retirement System, in which case he or she shall not receive a refund of contributions.
3. Any elected officer who has withdrawn from the Florida Retirement System pursuant to this paragraph shall be permitted to rejoin the Elected Officers’ Class upon written request to the administrator.
a. Credit for prior service based on the period for which refunds were received pursuant to subparagraph 2. shall be received by an elected officer who rejoins the system upon payment to the System Trust Fund of an amount equal to the contributions refunded to the elected officer pursuant to subparagraph 2., plus 4 percent interest compounded annually from the date of refund until July 1, 1975, and 6.5 percent interest, compounded annually thereafter until the date of payment.
b. Credit for prior service based on the period during which the elected officer had withdrawn from the system, and for which no contributions were made, shall be received by the elected officer upon payment to the System Trust Fund of an amount equal to the contributions required, under the contribution rate in effect during the period of withdrawal for which credit is being purchased, plus 6.5 percent interest, compounded annually until the date of payment. The payment of the total of such amount shall be made by the employer and the elected officer in the relative proportions provided by law for contributions during the period of withdrawal.

Failure to timely withdraw from the Elected Officers’ Class shall constitute an election to maintain membership in the Elected Officers’ Class.

(e) The governing body of a municipality or special district may, by majority vote, elect to designate all its elected positions for inclusion in the Elected Officers’ Class as follows.
1. Effective July 1, 1997, such election must be made between July 1, 1997, and December 31, 1997, and is irrevocable. The designation of such positions is effective the first day of the month following receipt by the department of the ordinance or resolution passed by the governing body.
2. Effective July 1, 2001, such election must be made between July 1, 2001, and December 31, 2001, and is irrevocable. The designation of such positions is effective the first day of the month following receipt by the department of the ordinance or resolution passed by the governing body.
3. Effective July 1, 2009, such election must be made between July 1, 2009, and December 31, 2009, and is irrevocable. The designation of such positions is effective the first day of the month following receipt by the department of the ordinance or resolution passed by the governing body.
(4) PARTICIPATION BY ELECTED OFFICERS SERVING A SHORTENED TERM DUE TO APPORTIONMENT, FEDERAL INTERVENTION, ETC.
(a) A duly elected officer whose term of office was shortened by legislative or judicial apportionment pursuant to s. 16, Art. III of the State Constitution may, after the term of office to which he or she was elected is completed, pay into the Florida Retirement System Trust Fund the amount of contributions that would have been made by the officer or the officer’s employer on his or her behalf, plus 4 percent interest compounded annually from the date he or she left office until July 1, 1975, and 6.5 percent interest compounded annually thereafter, and may receive service credit for the length of time the officer would have served if such term had not been shortened by apportionment.
(b) Any duly elected officer whose term of office was shortened because the election at which he or she was elected was delayed as a result of federal intervention under the federal Voting Rights Act may, after the term of office to which he or she was elected is completed, pay into the System Trust Fund the amount of contributions that would have been made by the employee or by the employer on his or her behalf for the period of time the assumption of office was delayed, plus 4 percent interest compounded annually from the date he or she assumed office until July 1, 1975, and 6.5 percent interest compounded annually thereafter, and may receive service credit for the length of time he or she would have served if such term had not been shortened by delay of the election.
(c) For the purpose of this chapter, “creditable service” includes the period from November 1972 to January 1973 which would have been served by an elected county officer but for the enactment of chapter 67-510, Laws of Florida, if the inclusion of such period would provide any person affected with sufficient creditable service to qualify for retirement benefits pursuant to this chapter.
(d)1. Any justice or judge, or any retired justice or judge who retired before July 1, 1993, who has attained the age of 70 years and who is prevented under s. 8, Art. V of the State Constitution from completing his or her term of office because of age may elect to purchase credit for all or a portion of the months he or she would have served during the remainder of the term of office; however, he or she may claim those months only after the date the service would have occurred. The justice or judge must pay into the Florida Retirement System Trust Fund the amount of contributions that would have been made by the employer on his or her behalf for the period of time being claimed, plus 6.5 percent interest thereon compounded each June 30 from the date he or she left office, in order to receive service credit in this class for the period of time being claimed. After the date the service would have occurred, and upon payment of the required contributions, the retirement benefit of a retired justice or judge shall be adjusted prospectively to include the additional creditable service; however, such adjustment may be made only once.
2. Any justice or judge who does not seek election to a subsequent term of office because he or she would be prevented under s. 8, Art. V of the State Constitution from completing such term of office upon attaining the age of 70 years may elect to purchase service credit for service as a temporary judge as assigned by the court if the temporary assignment immediately follows the last full term of office served and the purchase is limited to the number of months of service needed to vest retirement benefits. To receive retirement credit for such temporary service beyond termination, the justice or judge must pay into the Florida Retirement System Trust Fund the amount of contributions that would have been made by the justice or judge and the employer on his or her behalf had he or she continued in office for the period of time being claimed, plus 6.5 percent interest thereon compounded each June 30 from the date he or she left office.
(5) UPGRADED SERVICE; PURCHASE OF ADDITIONAL CREDIT.
(a) As provided in paragraph (b), and subject to the provisions of subsection (6), if applicable, a current or former member of the Elected Officers’ Class, or former elected officer who held office after his subclass of the Elected Officers’ Class was established, and who opted for membership in a membership class of the Florida Retirement System other than the Elected Officers’ Class, may purchase at his or her own expense additional retirement credit in the Elected Officers’ Class for all creditable service as an officer within the purview of this class, and such other creditable service as authorized hereunder for which he or she has accumulated credit in the retirement system or class within the Florida Retirement System from which he or she transfers. Any member of the Elected Officers’ Class may purchase additional retirement credit for service prior to January 1, 1973, as a county solicitor, elected county prosecuting attorney, county judge, judge of a court of record, judge of a criminal or civil court of record, judge of any metropolitan court established pursuant to s. 6, Art. VIII of the State Constitution, judge of a small claims court, or justice of the peace, or for service as a county court judge from January 1, 1973, to October 1, 1974.
(b) To receive additional retirement credit for service within the purview of the Elected Officers’ Class as provided in paragraph (a), such member shall pay a sum equal to the difference between the amounts derived under subparagraphs 1. and 2.:
1. The total employee and employer contributions actually paid, based on the actual gross salary received and the contribution rates in effect for the period of his or her tenure in office; and
2. The total contributions which would have been required at the time the service was rendered for the subclass of elected state officers’ service being purchased, based on the actual gross salary received or on a gross salary of $1,000 per month, whichever is greater, multiplied by the contribution rates required, as follows:
a. The contribution rates in effect at the time the service was rendered for the subclass of elected state officers’ service being purchased; or
b. The contribution rates in effect on July 1, 1972, for such service rendered before July 1, 1972, by an elected officer who held an elective office included within the Elected State Officers’ Class upon its creation; or
c. The contribution rates in effect for the appropriate subclass on the date of inclusion of the elective office within the Elected Officers’ Class, as set forth in subsection (2); or
d. For service as an elected county officer before July 1, 1981, the contribution rate applicable for the legislative subclass of the Elected State Officers’ Class,

plus interest thereon at the rate of 4 percent per year compounded annually each June 30 from the date of such service until July 1, 1975, and at the rate of 6.5 percent per year thereafter until the date of payment.

(c) Notwithstanding any provision of this subsection to the contrary, a current or former member of the Elected Officers’ Class, or a former elected officer as described in paragraph (a), may elect to claim additional retirement credit in the Elected Officers’ Class pursuant to paragraph (a) upon payment of the required contributions and interest due the Florida Retirement System Trust Fund. The current or former employer of such officer may elect to pay any portion of the total required employee and employer contributions and interest due on behalf of such member, provided such payment is made before January 1, 1998.
(d) Any member of the Florida Retirement System who serves as the elected mayor of a consolidated local government, which government by its charter has chosen status as a municipality rather than a county government for purposes of the state retirement system administered under this chapter, may elect membership in the Elected Officers’ Class established by this section for the duration of the term of office. Any such mayor or former mayor shall be eligible for membership in this class for the term of office, provided the member or the local government employer pays the retirement contributions that would have been paid had actual participation commenced at that time, plus interest at 6.5 percent compounded each June 30 from date of participation until date of payment. No retirement credit will be allowed under this subsection for any such service which is used to obtain a benefit under any local retirement system.
(6) DUAL EMPLOYMENT.A member may not participate in more than one state-administered retirement system, plan, or class of membership simultaneously. If an elected officer becomes dually employed, or if a member becomes dually employed as an elected officer, such officer shall have 6 months to elect membership from among the plans or classes for which he or she is eligible, as set forth in this subsection. Failure to make election during the prescribed period shall result in compulsory membership in the Elected Officers’ Class.
(a) If an elected officer is or becomes dually employed, he or she may elect membership in the Elected Officers’ Class and retirement contributions shall be made only on the salary earned as a state or county elected officer. At retirement, the officer’s average final compensation shall be based only on the salary received as an officer of that class for any period including dual employment.
(b) If an elected officer is or becomes dually employed in a position in the Regular Class, such officer may elect membership in the Regular Class and contributions shall be paid on the total salary received for all employment, at the contribution rate required for the Regular Class. At retirement, the officer’s average final compensation shall be based on all salary reported for both classes for any period including dual employment.
(c) If an elected officer is or becomes dually employed in a position in a class other than the Regular Class, he or she may elect to be a member of the other class for which he or she is eligible and retirement contributions shall be based only on the salary earned in the position other than the elected position. At retirement, the officer’s average final compensation shall be based only on the salary received as an employee in that position for any period including dual employment.
(d) A member of the State University System Optional Retirement Program, the State Community College System Optional Retirement Program, or the Senior Management Service Optional Annuity Program who becomes dually employed in an elected office eligible for the Elected Officers’ Class shall, within 6 months after assuming office, select membership in one of the following classes or plans. Failure to timely notify the administrator of such selection shall result in compulsory membership in the Elected Officers’ Class for the entire period of dual employment as an elected officer.
1. The Elected Officers’ Class.If the participant elects membership in the Elected Officers’ Class, participation in the optional retirement program or the optional annuity program shall cease for the period of dual employment, and retirement contributions shall be paid as required only on the salary earned as a state or county elected officer. At retirement, the member’s average final compensation under the Florida Retirement System shall be based only on the salary received as an employee in that position for such period including dual employment. When the member ceases to be a dually employed elected officer, he or she may, within 90 days, elect membership in the Florida Retirement System class for which he or she is eligible, except as provided in s. 121.051(1)(a) for members of a faculty practice plan, or may again become a participant in the optional retirement program or the optional annuity program for which he or she is eligible.
2. The State University System Optional Retirement Program, the State Community College System Optional Retirement Program, or the Senior Management System Optional Annuity Program.If the participant elects to remain a member of the optional program, retirement contributions shall be paid as required only on the salary earned in the position eligible for the optional program selected. At retirement, his or her annuity shall include the contributions required only on the salary received for employment in the position eligible for the selected optional program for such period including dual employment.
3. The Regular Class.If the participant elects membership in the Regular Class, participation in the optional retirement program or the optional annuity program shall cease for the period of dual employment and retirement contributions shall be paid as required on the total salary received for all employment. At retirement, his or her average final compensation under the Florida Retirement System shall be based on all salary reported for both positions during such period of dual employment. Membership in the optional program shall cease for as long as the officer remains an elected officer. When such member ceases to be a dually employed elected officer, he or she may, within 90 days, elect membership in the Florida Retirement System class for which he or she is eligible, except as provided in s. 121.051(1)(a) for members of a faculty practice plan, or again become a participant in the optional retirement program or the optional annuity program for which he or she is eligible.
(e) Where a former elected officer purchasing additional retirement credit under former subparagraph (5)(b)2. was dually employed, employee and employer contributions paid for service in the position not covered by the Elected Officers’ Class shall be refunded to the employee and employer, as applicable, and no salaries earned in a class other than the Elected Officers’ Class shall apply toward the officer’s average final compensation.
(7) CONTRIBUTIONS.
(a) The following table states the required retirement contribution rates for members of the Elected Officers’ Class and their employers in terms of a percentage of the member’s gross compensation. A change in a contribution rate is effective with the first salary paid on or after the beginning date of the change. Contributions shall be made or deducted as may be appropriate for each pay period and are in addition to the contributions required for social security and the Retiree Health Insurance Subsidy Trust Fund.

2. Effective July 1, 2002, the required retirement contribution rates shall be specified in s. 121.71.
(b) The employer paying the salary of a member of the Elected Officers’ Class shall contribute an amount as specified in this subsection or s. 121.71, as appropriate, which shall constitute the employer retirement contribution with respect to such member. The employer shall also withhold one-half of the entire contribution of the member required for social security coverage. Effective July 1, 2011, each member of the Elected Officers’ Class shall pay employee contributions as specified in s. 121.71.
(c) If a member of the Elected Officers’ Class ceases to fill an office covered by this class for 3 calendar months for any reason other than retirement and has not been employed in any capacity with any participating employer for 3 calendar months, the member may receive a refund of all contributions he or she has made to the pension plan, subject to the restrictions otherwise provided in this chapter. Partial refunds are not permitted. The refund shall not include any interest earnings on the contributions for a member of the pension plan. Employer contributions made on behalf of the member are not refundable. A member may not receive a refund of employee contributions if a pending or an approved qualified domestic relations order is filed against the member’s retirement account. By obtaining a refund of contributions, a member waives all rights under the Florida Retirement System and the health insurance subsidy provided under s. 112.363 to the service credit represented by the refunded contributions, except the right to purchase his or her prior service credit in accordance with s. 121.081(2).
(d) The following table states the required employer contribution on behalf of each member of the Elected Officers’ Class in terms of a percentage of the member’s gross compensation. Such contribution constitutes the entire health insurance subsidy contribution with respect to each such member. A change in the contribution rate is effective with the first salary paid on or after the beginning date of the change. The retiree health insurance subsidy contribution rate is as follows:

Such contributions and accompanying payroll data are due and payable no later than the 5th working day of the month immediately following the month during which the payroll period ended and shall be deposited by the administrator in the Retiree Health Insurance Subsidy Trust Fund.

(8) NORMAL RETIREMENT DATE; VESTING REQUIREMENT.A member of the Elected Officers’ Class shall have the same normal retirement date and vesting requirement, as those terms are defined in s. 121.021(29) and (45), for a member of the regular class of the Florida Retirement System. Any public service commissioner who was removed from the Elected State Officers’ Class on July 1, 1979, after attaining at least 8 years of creditable service in that class is considered to have reached the normal retirement date upon attaining age 62 as required in s. 121.021(29)(a).
(9) AVERAGE FINAL COMPENSATION.The average final compensation of a member of the Elected Officers’ Class shall be as defined in s. 121.021(24). If a member has received credit for upgraded previous Elected Officers’ Class service as provided in subsection (5), and the upgraded service salary is greater than his or her actual salary, the upgraded service salary shall be used to calculate the member’s average final compensation.
(10) ACCRUED SERVICE VALUE.A member of the Elected Officers’ Class who is a Supreme Court justice, district court of appeal judge, circuit judge, or county court judge shall receive judicial retirement credit of 31/3 percent of average final compensation, and all other members shall receive elected officer accrual value of 3 percent of average final compensation, for each year of creditable service in such class.
(11) RETENTION OF CREDIT.
(a) Any member of the Elected Officers’ Class who ceases to fill an office covered by this class and who is employed in a position covered by another class of the Florida Retirement System shall retain judicial or elected officer retirement credit in the Florida Retirement System, as applicable, for each year of creditable service in such class.
(b) Any public service commissioner who was removed from the Elected State Officers’ Class on July 1, 1979, shall retain any retirement credit earned in the Elected State Officers’ Class as of that date.
(c) Any member of the Elected Officers’ Class who leaves office or otherwise terminates membership in the retirement system for any reason other than death or retirement and who does not come under the provisions of paragraph (a) or paragraph (b) shall be subject to the termination benefit provisions of s. 121.091(5).
(12) BENEFITS.
(a) Upon attaining his or her normal retirement date, a member of the Elected Officers’ Class shall, upon application to the administrator, receive a monthly benefit which shall commence on the last day of the month of retirement and be payable on the last day of each month thereafter during his or her lifetime. The amount of such monthly benefit shall be the total percentage of accrued value received by the member multiplied by his or her average monthly compensation. The total percentage of accrued value received by a member shall be the sum of the retirement credit earned or purchased as a member of the Elected Officers’ Class, and any other retirement credit earned or purchased as a member of an existing system or another class of the Florida Retirement System, together with any additional retirement credit he or she has acquired for upgraded service within the purview of the class, wartime military service, or past or prior service. However, in no event shall the annual benefit exceed the member’s average final compensation.
(b) The benefit provisions of s. 121.091(2)-(6), (8), (9), and (11), relating to benefits payable for dual normal retirement ages, early retirement, disability retirement, termination benefits, optional forms of retirement, designation of beneficiaries, employment after retirement, and method of computing actuarial equivalent, respectively, shall also apply to members of the Elected Officers’ Class. These provisions shall be construed in such manner as to make them compatible with the provisions of this section.
(c) The benefit provisions of s. 121.091(7), relating to death benefits, shall apply to members of the Elected Officers’ Class and shall be construed in such manner as to make them compatible with the provisions of this section, except that:
1. If any elected official dies in office who would have been vested under the Elected Officers’ Class, any other class of the Florida Retirement System, or any other state-administered retirement system, if the official had lived to complete his or her term of office, the official’s spouse may elect to leave the official’s retirement contributions in the retirement trust fund and pay into said fund any required contributions which would have been paid by the officer or the employer had the officer lived to complete the term of office.
2. If a deceased member’s surviving spouse as described in subparagraph 1. previously received a refund of the member’s contributions made to the retirement trust fund, the surviving spouse may pay into the retirement trust fund an amount equal to the deceased member’s contributions previously refunded, together with interest at 4 percent compounded annually on the amount of such refunded contributions from the date of refund until July 1, 1975, and at 6.5 percent compounded annually thereafter to the date of payment, plus such additional contributions as may be required under subparagraph 1., in order to become vested, as applicable.

Upon conclusion of the term of office to which the deceased officer was elected, a spouse who pays into the retirement trust fund such additional or refunded contributions, plus interest, shall be eligible to receive a monthly benefit in the same manner as the surviving spouse of a member who dies after accumulating the required number of years of creditable service as described herein.

(d) The provisions of ss. 121.101 and 121.111, relating to the cost-of-living adjustment of retirement benefits and retirement credit for wartime military service, respectively, shall apply to members of the Elected Officers’ Class. Creditable service for actual wartime service, as authorized by s. 121.111(2), not exceeding 4 years, shall be acquired and paid for as provided in said subsection. Upon payment by the member of 4 percent of gross salary plus accrued interest, retirement credit shall be granted at the rate of 1.6 percent for each year of creditable service acquired under said subsection.
(13) SOCIAL SECURITY COVERAGE.Members of the Elected Officers’ Class shall be subject to social security coverage as provided by the federal Social Security Act. The administrator shall make such modification to the agreement between the state and the Federal Social Security Administrator, made pursuant to the provisions of chapter 650, hold any referendum, or take any other action as may be required to provide social security coverage for such members.
(14) RULES.The administrator shall make such rules as are necessary for the effective and efficient administration of the Elected Officers’ Class.
