Subd. 6.

Computation of formula program retirement annuity.

(a) The formula
retirement annuity must be computed in accordance with the applicable provisions of the
formulas stated in paragraph (b) or (d) on the basis of each member's average salary under
section 354.05, subdivision 13a, for the period of the member's formula service credit.

(b) This paragraph, in conjunction with paragraph (c), applies to a person who first
became a member of the association or a member of a pension fund listed in section 356.30,
subdivision 3
, before July 1, 1989, unless paragraph (d), in conjunction with paragraph (e),
produces a higher annuity amount, in which case paragraph (d) applies. The average salary
as defined in section 354.05, subdivision 13a, multiplied by the following percentages per
year of formula service credit shall determine the amount of the annuity to which the member
qualifying therefor is entitled for service rendered before July 1, 2006:

Basic Member
Each year of service
during first ten
1.2 percent per year

who was a member of the former Duluth Teachers Retirement Fund Association between
January 1, 2013, and June 30, 2015, the average salary as defined in section 354.05,

that the member's age of retirement precedes normal retirement age. The early reduction
factors are four percent per year for ages 55 through 59 and seven percent per year for ages
60 through normal retirement age. The resulting annuity must be further adjusted to take
into account augmentation as if the employee had deferred receipt of the annuity until normal
retirement age and the annuity were augmented at the applicable annual rate, compounded
annually, from the day the annuity begins to accrue until normal retirement age. The
applicable annual rate is the rate in effect on the employee's effective date of retirement and
shall be considered as fixed for the employee. The applicable annual rates are the following:

new text begin (i) until June 30, 2019, 2.5 percent;

period of uninterrupted service, a separate average salary determined under section 354A.31
must be used for each period, and the monthly annuity amount related to each period must
be augmented as provided in this subdivision. The sum of the augmented monthly annuity
amounts determines the total deferred annuity payable. If a person repays a refund, the
service restored by the repayment must be considered as continuous with the next period
of service for which the person has credit with the fund. If a person does not render teaching
services in any one fiscal year or more consecutive fiscal years and then resumes teaching
service, the formula percentages used from the date of resumption of teaching service are
those applicable to new members. The mortality table and interest assumption used to
compute the annuity are the table established by the fund to compute other annuities, and
the interest assumption under section 356.215 in effect when the member retires. A period
of uninterrupted service for the purpose of this subdivision means a period of covered
teaching service during which the member has not been separated from active service for
more than one fiscal year.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 356.215, subdivision 11, is amended to read:


Subd. 11.

Amortization contributions.

(a) In addition to the exhibit indicating the level
normal cost, the actuarial valuation of the retirement plan must contain an exhibit for financial
reporting purposes indicating the additional annual contribution sufficient to amortize the
unfunded actuarial accrued liability and must contain an exhibit for contribution
determination purposes indicating the additional contribution sufficient to amortize the
unfunded actuarial accrued liability. For the retirement plans listed in subdivision 8, paragraph
(c), but excluding the legislators retirement plan, the additional contribution must be
calculated on a level percentage of covered payroll basis by the established date for full
funding in effect when the valuation is prepared, assuming annual payroll growth at the
applicable percentage rate set forth in subdivision 8, paragraph (d). For all other retirement
plans and for the legislators retirement plan, the additional annual contribution must be
calculated on a level annual dollar amount basis.

(b) For any retirement plan other than a retirement plan governed by paragraph (d), (e),
(f), (g), (h), (i), or (j), if there has not been a change in the actuarial assumptions used for
calculating the actuarial accrued liability of the fund, a change in the benefit plan governing
annuities and benefits payable from the fund, a change in the actuarial cost method used in
calculating the actuarial accrued liability of all or a portion of the fund, or a combination
of the three, which change or changes by itself or by themselves without inclusion of any
other items of increase or decrease produce a net increase in the unfunded actuarial accrued
liability of the fund, the established date for full funding is the first actuarial valuation date
occurring after June 1, 2020.

(c) For any retirement plan, if there has been a change in any or all of the actuarial
assumptions used for calculating the actuarial accrued liability of the fund, a change in the
benefit plan governing annuities and benefits payable from the fund, a change in the actuarial
cost method used in calculating the actuarial accrued liability of all or a portion of the fund,
or a combination of the three, and the change or changes, by itself or by themselves and
without inclusion of any other items of increase or decrease, produce a net increase in the
unfunded actuarial accrued liability in the fund, the established date for full funding must
be determined using the following procedure:

(i) the unfunded actuarial accrued liability of the fund must be determined in accordance
with the plan provisions governing annuities and retirement benefits and the actuarial
assumptions in effect before an applicable change;

(ii) the level annual dollar contribution or level percentage, whichever is applicable,
needed to amortize the unfunded actuarial accrued liability amount determined under item
(i) by the established date for full funding in effect before the change must be calculated
using the interest assumption specified in subdivision 8 in effect before the change;

(iii) the unfunded actuarial accrued liability of the fund must be determined in accordance
with any new plan provisions governing annuities and benefits payable from the fund and
any new actuarial assumptions and the remaining plan provisions governing annuities and
benefits payable from the fund and actuarial assumptions in effect before the change;

(iv) the level annual dollar contribution or level percentage, whichever is applicable,
needed to amortize the difference between the unfunded actuarial accrued liability amount
calculated under item (i) and the unfunded actuarial accrued liability amount calculated
under item (iii) over a period of 30 years from the end of the plan year in which the applicable
change is effective must be calculated using the applicable interest assumption specified in
subdivision 8 in effect after any applicable change;

(v) the level annual dollar or level percentage amortization contribution under item (iv)
must be added to the level annual dollar amortization contribution or level percentage
calculated under item (ii);

(vi) the period in which the unfunded actuarial accrued liability amount determined in
item (iii) is amortized by the total level annual dollar or level percentage amortization
contribution computed under item (v) must be calculated using the interest assumption
specified in subdivision 8 in effect after any applicable change, rounded to the nearest
integral number of years, but not to exceed 30 years from the end of the plan year in which
the determination of the established date for full funding using the procedure set forth in
this clause is made and not to be less than the period of years beginning in the plan year in
which the determination of the established date for full funding using the procedure set forth
in this clause is made and ending by the date for full funding in effect before the change;
and

(vii) the period determined under item (vi) must be added to the date as of which the
actuarial valuation was prepared and the date obtained is the new established date for full
funding.

or sufficiency in annual contributions when comparing liabilities to the market value of the
assets of the fund as of the close of the most recent fiscal year

(k) For the retirement plans for which the annual actuarial valuation indicates an excess
of valuation assets over the actuarial accrued liability, the valuation assets in excess of the
actuarial accrued liability must be recognized as a reduction in the current contribution
requirements by an amount equal to the amortization of the excess expressed as a level
percentage of pay over a 30-year period beginning anew with each annual actuarial valuation
of the plan.

Reduced salary during period of workers' compensation.

An employee
on leave of absence receiving temporary workers' compensation payments and a reduced
salary or no salary from the employer who is entitled to allowable service credit for the
period of absence, may make payment to the fund for the difference between salary received,
if any, and the salary the employee would normally receive if not on leave of absence during
the period. The employee shall pay an amount equal to the employee and employer
contribution rate under section 352.04, subdivisions 2 and 3, on the differential salary amount
for the period of the leave of absence.

Purchase procedure.

(a) An employee covered by a plan specified in this
chapter may purchase credit for allowable service in that plan for a period specified in
subdivision 1 if the employee makes a payment as specified in paragraph (b) or (c), whichever
applies. The employing unit, at its option, may pay the employer portion of the amount
specified in paragraph (b) on behalf of its employees.

(b) If payment is received by the executive director within one year from the date the
employee returned to work following the authorized leave, the payment amount is equal to
the employee and employer contribution rates specified in law for the applicable plan at the
end of the leave period multiplied by the employee's hourly rate of salary on the date of
return from the leave of absence and by the days and months of the leave of absence for

made before the date of termination from public employment covered under this chapter.

(c) If the employee terminates employment covered by this chapter during the leave or
following the leave rather than returning to covered employment, payment must be received
by the executive director within 30 days after the termination date. The payment amount is

from the salary of the employee, the department must nevertheless pay the required employer
contributions. If any department fails to take deductions past due for a period in excess of
60 days and the employee is no longer in state service, the omitted contributions must be

(d) If an employee from whose salary required deductions were past due for a period of
60 days or less leaves state service before the payment of the omitted deductions and
subsequently returns to state service, the unpaid amount is considered the equivalent of a
refund. The employee accrues no right by reason of the unpaid amount, except that the
employee may pay the amount of omitted deductions as provided in section 352.23.

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 352.04, subdivision 9, is amended to read:


Subd. 9.

department making the payment, the sum deducted, or the part of it required to adjust the
deductions, must be refunded to the department or institution if the department applies for

allowable service credits and all rights and benefits to which the employee was entitled
before accepting the refund terminate.

(b) Terminated service credits and rights must not again be restored until the former
employee acquires at least six months of allowable service credit after taking the last refund.
In that event, the employee may repay all refunds previously taken from the retirement fund.

Sec. 7.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 352.27, is amended to read:


352.27 CREDIT FOR BREAK IN SERVICE TO PROVIDE UNIFORMED
SERVICE.

(a) An employee who is absent from employment by reason of service in the uniformed
services, as defined in United States Code, title 38, section 4303(13), and who returns to
state service upon discharge from service in the uniformed service within the time frames
required in United States Code, title 38, section 4312(e), may obtain service credit for the
period of the uniformed service as further specified in this section, provided that the employee
did not separate from uniformed service with a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge or
under other than honorable conditions.

(b) The employee may obtain credit by paying into the fund an equivalent employee
contribution based upon the contribution rate or rates in effect at the time that the uniformed
service was performed multiplied by the full and fractional years being purchased and
applied to the annual salary rate. The annual salary rate is the average annual salary during
the purchase period that the employee would have received if the employee had continued
to be employed in covered employment rather than to provide uniformed service, or, if the
determination of that rate is not reasonably certain, the annual salary rate is the employee's
average salary rate during the 12-month period of covered employment rendered immediately
preceding the period of the uniformed service.

(c) The equivalent employer contribution and, if applicable, the equivalent additional
employer contribution provided in this chapter must be paid by the department employing
the employee from funds available to the department at the time and in the manner provided
in this chapter, using the employer and additional employer contribution rate or rates in
effect at the time that the uniformed service was performed, applied to the same annual
salary rate or rates used to compute the equivalent employee contribution.

(d) If the employee equivalent contributions provided in this section are not paid in full,
the employee's allowable service credit must be prorated by multiplying the full and fractional
number of years of uniformed service eligible for purchase by the ratio obtained by dividing
the total employee contribution received by the total employee contribution otherwise
required under this section.

(e) To receive service credit under this section, the contributions specified in this section
must be transmitted to the Minnesota State Retirement System during the period which
begins with the date on which the individual returns to state service and which has a duration
of three times the length of the uniformed service period, but not to exceed five years. If
the determined payment period is less than one year, the contributions required under this
section to receive service credit may be made within one year of the discharge date.

(f) The amount of service credit obtainable under this section may not exceed five years
unless a longer purchase period is required under United States Code, title 38, section 4312.

(g) The employing unit shall pay interest on all equivalent employee and employer
contribution amounts payable under this section. Interest must be deleted text begincomputed at the rate of

Payment of additional equivalent contributions.

(a) An eligible employee
who is transferred to plan coverage and who elects to transfer past service credit under this
section must pay an additional member contribution for that prior service period. The
additional member contribution is the amount computed under paragraph (b), plus the greater
of the amount computed under paragraph (c), or 40 percent of the unfunded actuarial accrued
liability attributable to the past service credit transfer.

(b) The executive director shall compute, for the most recent 12 months of service credit
eligible for transfer, or for the entire period eligible for transfer if less than 12 months, the
difference between the employee contribution rate or rates for the general state employees
retirement plan and the employee contribution rate or rates for the correctional state

(d) The executive director shall compute an amount using the process specified in
paragraph (b), but based on differences in employer contribution rates between the general
state employees retirement plan and the correctional state employees retirement plan rather
than employee contribution rates.

(e) The executive director shall compute an amount using the process specified in
paragraph (c), but based on differences in employer contribution rates between the general
state employees retirement plan and the correctional state employees retirement plan rather
than employee contribution rates.

(f) The additional equivalent member contribution under this subdivision must be paid
in a lump sum. Payment must accompany the election to transfer the prior service credit.
No transfer election or additional equivalent member contribution payment may be made
by a person or accepted by the executive director after the one year anniversary date of the
effective date of the retirement coverage transfer, or the date on which the eligible employee
terminates state employment, whichever is earlier.

(g) If an eligible employee elects to transfer past service credit under this section and
pays the additional equivalent member contribution amount under paragraph (a), the
applicable department shall pay an additional equivalent employer contribution amount.
The additional employer contribution is the amount computed under paragraph (d), plus the
greater of the amount computed under paragraph (e), or 60 percent of the unfunded actuarial
accrued liability attributable to the past service credit transfer.

(h) The unfunded actuarial accrued liability attributable to the past service credit transfer
is the present value of the benefit obtained by the transfer of the service credit to the
correctional state employees retirement plan reduced by the amount of the asset transfer
under subdivision 4, by the amount of the member contribution equivalent payment computed
under paragraph (b), and by the amount of the employer contribution equivalent payment
computed under paragraph (d).

(i) The additional equivalent employer contribution under this subdivision must be paid
in a lump sum and must be paid within 30 days of the date on which the executive director
of the Minnesota State Retirement System certifies to the applicable department that the
employee paid the additional equivalent member contribution.

date of termination from public employment covered under this chapter.

(c) If the employee terminates employment covered by this chapter during the leave or
following the leave rather than returning to covered employment, payment must be received
by the executive director within 30 days after the termination date. The payment amount is
equal to the employee and employer contribution rates specified in section 352B.02 on the

352B.086 SERVICE CREDIT FOR UNIFORMED SERVICE.

(a) A member who is absent from employment by reason of service in the uniformed
services, as defined in United States Code, title 38, section 4303(13), and who returns to
state employment in a position covered by the plan upon discharge from service in the
uniformed services within the time frame required in United States Code, title 38, section
4312(e), may obtain service credit for the period of the uniformed service, provided that
the member did not separate from uniformed service with a dishonorable or bad conduct
discharge or under other than honorable conditions.

(b) The member may obtain credit by paying into the fund an equivalent member
contribution based on the member contribution rate or rates in effect at the time that the
uniformed service was performed multiplied by the full and fractional years being purchased
and applied to the annual salary rate. The annual salary rate is the average annual salary
during the purchase period that the member would have received if the member had continued
to provide employment services to the state rather than to provide uniformed service, or if
the determination of that rate is not reasonably certain, the annual salary rate is the member's
average salary rate during the 12-month period of covered employment rendered immediately
preceding the purchase period.

(c) The equivalent employer contribution and, if applicable, the equivalent employer
additional contribution, must be paid by the employing unit, using the employer and employer
additional contribution rate or rates in effect at the time that the uniformed service was
performed, applied to the same annual salary rate or rates used to compute the equivalent
member contribution.

(d) If the member equivalent contributions provided for in this section are not paid in
full, the member's allowable service credit must be prorated by multiplying the full and
fractional number of years of uniformed service eligible for purchase by the ratio obtained
by dividing the total member contributions received by the total member contributions
otherwise required under this section.

(e) To receive allowable service credit under this section, the contributions specified in
this section must be transmitted to the fund during the period which begins with the date
on which the individual returns to state employment covered by the plan and which has a
duration of three times the length of the uniformed service period, but not to exceed five
years. If the determined payment period is calculated to be less than one year, the
contributions required under this section to receive service credit must be transmitted to the
fund within one year from the discharge date.

(f) The amount of allowable service credit obtainable under this section may not exceed
five years, unless a longer purchase period is required under United States Code, title 38,
section 4312.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 353.01, subdivision 16, is amended to read:


Subd. 16.

Allowable service; limits and computation.

(a) "Allowable service" means:

(1) service during years of actual membership in the course of which employee deductions
were withheld from salary and contributions were made at the applicable rates under section
353.27, 353.65, or 353E.03;

(2) periods of service covered by payments in lieu of salary deductions under sections
353.27, subdivisions 12 and 12a, and 353.35;

(3) service in years during which the public employee was not a member but for which
the member later elected, while a member, to obtain credit by making payments to the fund
as permitted by any law then in effect;

(4) a period of authorized leave of absence during which the employee receives pay as
specified in subdivision 10, paragraph (a), clause (4) or (5), from which deductions for
employee contributions are made, deposited, and credited to the fund;

(5) a period of authorized leave of absence without pay, or with pay that is not included
in the definition of salary under subdivision 10, paragraph (a), clause (4) or (5), for which
salary deductions are not authorized, and for which a member obtained service credit for
up to 12 months of the authorized leave period by payment under section 353.0161 or
353.0162, to the fund made in place of salary deductions;

(6) a periodic, repetitive leave that is offered to all employees of a governmental
subdivision. The leave program may not exceed 208 hours per annual normal work cycle
as certified to the association by the employer. A participating member obtains service credit
by making employee contributions in an amount or amounts based on the member's average
salary, excluding overtime pay, that would have been paid if the leave had not been taken.
The employer shall pay the employer and additional employer contributions on behalf of
the participating member. The employee and the employer are responsible to pay interest
on their respective shares at the deleted text beginrate of 8.5 percent until June 30, 2015, and eight percent

specified in section 356.59, subdivision 3

who makes employee contributions but terminates public service. The employee contributions
must be made within one year after the end of the annual normal working cycle or within
30 days after termination of public service, whichever is sooner. The executive director
shall prescribe the manner and forms to be used by a governmental subdivision in
administering a periodic, repetitive leave. Upon payment, the member must be granted
allowable service credit for the purchased period;

(7) an authorized temporary or seasonal layoff under subdivision 12, limited to three
months allowable service per authorized temporary or seasonal layoff in one calendar year.
An employee who has received the maximum service credit allowed for an authorized
temporary or seasonal layoff must return to public service and must obtain a minimum of
three months of allowable service subsequent to the layoff in order to receive allowable
service for a subsequent authorized temporary or seasonal layoff;

(8) a period during which a member is absent from employment by a governmental
subdivision by reason of service in the uniformed services, as defined in United States Code,
title 38, section 4303(13), if the member returns to public service with the same governmental
subdivision upon discharge from service in the uniformed service within the time frames
required under United States Code, title 38, section 4312(e), provided that the member did
not separate from uniformed service with a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge or under
other than honorable conditions. The service must be credited if the member pays into the
fund equivalent employee contributions based upon the contribution rate or rates in effect
at the time that the uniformed service was performed multiplied by the full and fractional
years being purchased and applied to the annual salary rate. The annual salary rate is the
average annual salary during the purchase period that the member would have received if
the member had continued to be employed in covered employment rather than to provide
uniformed service, or, if the determination of that rate is not reasonably certain, the annual
salary rate is the member's average salary rate during the 12-month period of covered
employment rendered immediately preceding the period of the uniformed service. Payment
of the member equivalent contributions must be made during a period that begins with the
date on which the individual returns to public employment and that is three times the length
of the military leave period, or within five years of the date of discharge from the military
service, whichever is less. If the determined payment period is less than one year, the
contributions required under this clause to receive service credit may be made within one
year of the discharge date. Payment may not be accepted following 30 days after termination
of public service under subdivision 11a. If the member equivalent contributions provided
for in this clause are not paid in full, the member's allowable service credit must be prorated
by multiplying the full and fractional number of years of uniformed service eligible for
purchase by the ratio obtained by dividing the total member contributions received by the
total member contributions otherwise required under this clause. The equivalent employer
contribution, and, if applicable, the equivalent additional employer contribution must be
paid by the governmental subdivision employing the member if the member makes the
equivalent employee contributions. The employer payments must be made from funds
available to the employing unit, using the employer and additional employer contribution
rate or rates in effect at the time that the uniformed service was performed, applied to the
same annual salary rate or rates used to compute the equivalent member contribution. The
governmental subdivision involved may appropriate money for those payments. The amount
of service credit obtainable under this section may not exceed five years unless a longer
purchase period is required under United States Code, title 38, section 4312. The employing
unit shall pay interest on all equivalent member and employer contribution amounts payable
under this clause. Interest must be computed at the deleted text beginrate of 8.5 percent until June 30, 2015,
and eight percent thereafter
deleted text endnew text begin applicable rate or rates specified in section 356.59, subdivision

to the end of the month in which the payment is received. Upon payment, the employee
must be granted allowable service credit for the purchased period; or

(9) a period specified under section 353.0162.

(b) No member may receive more than 12 months of allowable service credit in a year
either for vesting purposes or for benefit calculation purposes.

(c) For an active member who was an active member of the former Minneapolis
Firefighters Relief Association on December 29, 2011, "allowable service" is the period of
service credited by the Minneapolis Firefighters Relief Association as reflected in the
transferred records of the association up to December 30, 2011, and the period of service
credited under paragraph (a), clause (1), after December 30, 2011. For an active member
who was an active member of the former Minneapolis Police Relief Association on December
29, 2011, "allowable service" is the period of service credited by the Minneapolis Police
Relief Association as reflected in the transferred records of the association up to December
30, 2011, and the period of service credited under paragraph (a), clause (1), after December
30, 2011.

353.0162 REDUCED SALARY PERIODS SALARY CREDIT PURCHASE.

(a) A member may purchase additional salary credit for a period specified in this section.

(b) The applicable period is a period during which the member is receiving a reduced
salary from the employer while the member is:

(1) receiving temporary workers' compensation payments related to the member's service
to the public employer;

(2) on an authorized leave of absence; or

(3) on an authorized partial paid leave of absence as a result of a budgetary or salary
savings program offered or mandated by a governmental subdivision.

(c) The differential salary amount is the difference between the average monthly salary
received by the member during the period of reduced salary under this section and the
average monthly salary of the member, excluding overtime, on which contributions to the
applicable plan were made during the period of the last six months of covered employment
occurring immediately before the period of reduced salary, applied to the member's normal
employment period, measured in hours or otherwise, as applicable.

(d) To receive eligible salary credit, the member shall pay an amount equal to:

(1) the applicable employee contribution rate under section 353.27, subdivision 2; 353.65,
subdivision 2
; or 353E.03, subdivision 1, as applicable, multiplied by the differential salary
amount;

(2) plus an employer equivalent payment equal to the applicable employer contribution
rate in section 353.27, subdivision 3; 353.65, subdivision 3; or 353E.03, subdivision 2, as
applicable, multiplied by the differential salary amount;

(3) plus, if applicable, an equivalent employer additional amount equal to the additional
employer contribution rate in section 353.27, subdivision 3a, multiplied by the differential
salary amount.

(e) The employer, by appropriate action of its governing body and documented in its
official records, may pay the employer equivalent contributions and, as applicable, the
equivalent employer additional contributions on behalf of the member.

days from termination of public service by the employee under section 353.01, subdivision
11a
, or one year after the termination of the period specified in paragraph (b), as further
restricted under this section.

(g) The period for which additional allowable salary credit may be purchased is limited
to the period during which the person receives temporary workers' compensation payments
or for those business years in which the governmental subdivision offers or mandates a
budget or salary savings program, as certified to the executive director by a resolution of
the governing body of the governmental subdivision. For an authorized leave of absence,
the period for which allowable salary credit may be purchased may not exceed 12 months
of authorized leave.

(h) To purchase salary credit for a subsequent period of temporary workers' compensation
benefits or subsequent authorized medical leave of absence, the member must return to
public service and render a minimum of three months of allowable service.

Employees Retirement Fund-covered employing units are governed by this subdivision.

(b) The member contribution for a public employee who was a member of the former
Minneapolis Employees Retirement Fund on June 29, 2010, is 9.75 percent of the salary of
the employee.

(c) The employer regular contribution with respect to a public employee who was a
member of the former Minneapolis Employees Retirement Fund on June 29, 2010, is 9.75
percent of the salary of the employee.

(d) The annual employer supplemental contribution is the employing unit's share of
$31,000,000. For calendar years 2017 and 2018, the employer supplemental contribution
is the employing unit's share of $21,000,000.

(e) Each employing unit's share under paragraph (d) is the amount determined from an

erroneously transmitted to the association, but should have been transmitted to a plan covered
by chapter 352D, 353D, 354B, or 354D, the executive director shall transfer the erroneous
employee deductions and employer contributions to the appropriate retirement fund or
individual account, as applicable. The time limitations specified in subdivisions 7 and 12

as amended, must not be made by the executive director of the association. Within 30 days
after being notified by the Public Employees Retirement Association of an unmade potential
transfer under this paragraph, the employer of the affected person must transmit an amount
representing the applicable salary deductions and employer contributions, without interest,
to the retirement fund of the appropriate Minnesota public pension plan, or to the applicable
individual account if the proper coverage is by a defined contribution plan. The association
must provide the employing unit a credit for the amount of the erroneous salary deductions
and employer contributions against future contributions from the employer. If the employing
unit receives a credit under this paragraph, the employing unit is responsible for refunding
to the applicable employee any amount that had been erroneously deducted from the person's
salary.

(c) If erroneous employee deductions and employer contributions reflect a plan coverage
error involving any Public Employees Retirement Association plan specified in section
356.99 and any other plan specified in that section, section 356.99 applies.

(a) In the case of omission of
required deductions for the general employees retirement plan, the public employees police
and fire retirement plan, or the local government correctional employees retirement plan

employee contribution was first payable.

(d) An employer shall not hold an employee liable for omitted employee deductions
beyond the pay period dates under paragraph (c), nor attempt to recover from the employee

Sec. 33.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 354A.12, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Recovery of benefit overpayments.

(a) If the executive director discovers,
within the time period specified in subdivision 8 following the payment of a refund or the
accrual date of any retirement annuity, survivor benefit, or disability benefit, that benefit
overpayment has occurred due to using invalid service or salary, or due to any erroneous
calculation procedure, the executive director must recalculate the annuity or benefit payable
and recover any overpayment. The executive director shall recover the overpayment by
requiring direct repayment or by suspending or reducing the payment of a retirement annuity
or other benefit payable under this chapter to the applicable person or the person's estate,
whichever applies, until all outstanding amounts have been recovered. If a benefit
overpayment or improper payment of benefits occurred caused by a failure of the person
to satisfy length of separation requirements for retirement under section 354A.011,
subdivision 21
, the executive director shall recover the improper payments by requiring
direct repayment. The repayment must include interest at the deleted text beginrate of 0.71 percent per monthdeleted text end

the month in which a monthly benefit amount was paid to the first of the month in which
the amount is repaid, with annual compounding.

(b) In the event the executive director determines that an overpaid annuity or benefit
that is the result of invalid salary included in the average salary used to calculate the payment
amount must be recovered, the executive director must determine the amount of the employee
deductions taken in error on the invalid salary, with interest as determined under 354A.37,
subdivision 3
, and must subtract that amount from the total annuity or benefit overpayment,
and the remaining balance of the overpaid annuity or benefit, if any, must be recovered.

(c) If the invalid employee deductions plus interest exceed the amount of the overpaid
benefits, the balance must be refunded to the person to whom the benefit or annuity is being
paid.

(d) Any invalid employer contributions reported on the invalid salary must be credited
against future contributions payable by the employer.

(e) If a member or former member, who is receiving a retirement annuity or disability
benefit for which an overpayment is being recovered, dies before recovery of the overpayment
is completed and an optional annuity or refund is payable, the remaining balance of the
overpaid annuity or benefit must continue to be recovered from the payment to the optional
annuity beneficiary or refund recipient.

(f) The board of trustees shall adopt policies directing the period of time and manner
for the collection of any overpaid retirement or optional annuity, and survivor or disability
benefit, or a refund that the executive director determines must be recovered as provided
under this section.

beneficiary who has survived the retiree, any remaining unpaid guaranteed annuity payments
shall be computed at the rate of interest specified in section 356.215, subdivision 8, and
paid in one lump sum to the estate of the retiree. If a retiree from a coordinated program

pay, not to exceed a period of one year, if the employee makes a payment in lieu of salary
deductions as specified in paragraph (b) or (c), whichever applies. The employing unit, at

covered by a public pension plan listed in section 356.30, subdivision 3, for employment
during the removal period. The person shall pay the required member contribution amount
within 60 days of the date of receipt of the back pay award or within 60 days of a billing
from the retirement fund, whichever is later.

(b) The public employer who wrongfully discharged the public employee must pay an

present value, on the date of payment, as calculated by the chief administrative officer of
the pension plan and reviewed by the actuary retained under section 356.214, of the amount
of the additional retirement annuity obtained by the acquisition of the additional service
credit in this section.

(b) Calculation of this amount must be made using the preretirement interest rate
applicable to the public pension plan specified in section 356.215, subdivision 8, and the
mortality table adopted for the public pension plan. The calculation must assume continuous
future service in the public pension plan until, and retirement at, the age at which the
minimum requirements of the fund for normal retirement or retirement with an annuity
unreduced for retirement at an early age, including section 356.30, are met with the additional
service credit purchased. The calculation must also assume a full-time equivalent salary, or

the member's effective date of retirement, whichever is earlier. Payment of the amount
calculated under this section must be made by the applicable eligible person.

(e) However, the current employer or the prior employer may, at its discretion, pay all

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 490.121, subdivision 4, is amended to read:


Subd. 4.

Allowable service.

(a) "Allowable service" means any calendar month, subject
to the service credit limit in subdivision 22, served as a judge at any time, during which the
judge received compensation for that service from the state, municipality, or county,
whichever applies, and for which the judge made any required member contribution. It also
includes any month served as a referee in probate for all referees in probate who were in
office before January 1, 1974.

(b) "Allowable service" also means a period of authorized leave of absence for which
the judge has made a payment in lieu of contributions, not in an amount in excess of the
service credit limit under subdivision 22. To obtain the service credit, the judge shall pay
an amount equal to the normal cost of the judges retirement plan on the date of return from
the leave of absence, as determined in the most recent actuarial report for the plan filed with
the Legislative Commission on Pensions and Retirement, multiplied by the judge's average
monthly salary rate during the authorized leave of absence and multiplied by the number

Service credit for an authorized leave of absence is in addition to a uniformed service leave
under section 490.1211.

(c) "Allowable service" does not mean service as a retired judge.

Sec. 41.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 490.1211, is amended to read:


490.1211 UNIFORMED SERVICE.

(a) A judge who is absent from employment by reason of service in the uniformed
services, as defined in United States Code, title 38, section 4303(13), and who returns to
state employment as a judge upon discharge from service in the uniformed service within
the time frame required in United States Code, title 38, section 4312(e), may obtain service
credit for the period of the uniformed service, provided that the judge did not separate from
uniformed service with a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge or under other than honorable
conditions.

(b) The judge may obtain credit by paying into the fund equivalent member contribution
based on the contribution rate or rates in effect at the time that the uniformed service was
performed multiplied by the full and fractional years being purchased and applied to the
annual salary rate. The annual salary rate is the average annual salary during the purchase
period that the judge would have received if the judge had continued to provide employment
services to the state rather than to provide uniformed service, or if the determination of that
rate is not reasonably certain, the annual salary rate is the judge's average salary rate during
the 12-month period of judicial employment rendered immediately preceding the purchase
period.

(c) The equivalent employer contribution and, if applicable, the equivalent employer
additional contribution, must be paid by the employing unit, using the employer and employer
additional contribution rate or rates in effect at the time that the uniformed service was
performed, applied to the same annual salary rate or rates used to compute the equivalent
member contribution.

(d) If the member equivalent contributions provided for in this section are not paid in
full, the judge's allowable service credit must be prorated by multiplying the full and
fractional number of years of uniformed service eligible for purchase by the ratio obtained
by dividing the total member contributions received by the total member contributions
otherwise required under this section.

(e) To receive allowable service credit under this section, the contributions specified in
this section and section 490.121 must be transmitted to the fund during the period which
begins with the date on which the individual returns to judicial employment and which has
a duration of three times the length of the uniformed service period, but not to exceed five
years. If the determined payment period is calculated to be less than one year, the
contributions required under this section to receive service credit may be within one year
from the discharge date.

(f) The amount of allowable service credit obtainable under this section and section
490.121 may not exceed five years, unless a longer purchase period is required under United
States Code, title 38, section 4312.

(g) The state court administrator shall pay interest on all equivalent member and employer
contribution amounts payable under this section. Interest must be deleted text begincomputed at the rate of

Refund.

(a) A person who ceases to be a judge is entitled to a refund in an
amount that is equal to all of the member's employee contributions to the judges' retirement
fund plus interest computed under section 352.22, subdivision 2.

(b) A refund of contributions under paragraph (a) terminates all service credits and all
rights and benefits of the judge and the judge's survivors under this chapter.

(c) A person who becomes a judge again after taking a refund under paragraph (a) may
reinstate the previously terminated allowable service credit, rights, and benefits by repaying
the total amount of the previously received refund. The refund repayment must include
