352D.04 Investment options.
Subdivision 1. Investment options. (a) A person exercising an option to participate in the retirement program provided by this chapter may elect to purchase shares in one or a combination of the income share account, the growth share account, the international share account, the money market account, the bond market account, the fixed interest account, or the common stock index account established in section 11A.17. The person may elect to participate in one or more of the investment accounts in the fund by specifying, on a form provided by the executive director, the percentage of the person's contributions provided in subdivision 2 to be used to purchase shares in each of the accounts.
(b) A participant may indicate in writing on forms provided by the Minnesota state retirement system a choice of options for subsequent purchases of shares. Until a different written indication is made by the participant, the executive director shall purchase shares in the supplemental fund as selected by the participant. If no initial option is chosen, 100 percent income shares must be purchased for a participant. A change in choice of investment option is effective no later than the first pay date first occurring after 30 days following the receipt of the request for a change.
(c) Shares in the fixed interest account attributable to any guaranteed investment contract as of July 1, 1994, may not be withdrawn from the fund or transferred to another account until the guaranteed investment contract has expired, unless the participant qualifies for withdrawal under section 352D.05 or for benefit payments under sections 352D.06 to 352D.075.
(d) A participant or former participant may also change the investment options selected for all or a portion of the participant's shares previously purchased in accounts, subject to the provisions of paragraph (c) concerning the fixed interest account. Changes in investment options for the participant's shares must be effected as soon as cash flow to an account practically permits, but not later than six months after the requested change.
Subd. 2. Contribution rates. (a) The money used to purchase shares under this section is the employee and employer contributions provided in this subdivision.
(b) The employee contribution is an amount equal to the employee contribution specified in section 352.04, subdivision 2.
(c) The employer contribution is an amount equal to six percent of salary.
(d) These contributions must be made in the manner provided in section 352.04, subdivisions 4, 5, and 6.
(e) For members of the legislature, the contributions under this subdivision also must be made on per diem payments received during a regular or special legislative session, but may not be made on per diem payments received outside of a regular or special legislative session, on the additional compensation attributable to a leadership position under section 3.099, subdivision 3, living expense payments under section 3.101, or special session living expense payments under section 3.103.
