356.41 Benefit adjustments for certain disability and survivor benefits.

Disability benefits payable to a disabilitant, if not otherwise included in the participation in the Minnesota postretirement investment fund, and survivor benefits payable to a survivor from any public pension plan which participates in the Minnesota postretirement investment fund must be adjusted in the same manner, at the same times and in the same amounts as are benefits payable from the Minnesota postretirement investment fund to eligible benefit recipients of that public pension plan. If a disability benefit is not included in the participation in the Minnesota postretirement investment fund, the disability benefit is recomputed as a retirement annuity and the recipient would have been eligible for an adjustment under this section if the disability benefit was not recomputed, the recipient remains eligible for the adjustment under this section after the recomputation. For the survivor of a deceased annuitant who receives a survivor benefit calculated under a prior law rather than the second portion of a joint and survivor annuity, any period of receipt of a retirement annuity by the annuitant must be utilized in determining the period of receipt for eligibility to receive an adjustment under this section. No recipient, however, is entitled to more than one adjustment under this section or section 11A.18 applicable to one benefit at one time by reason of this section.
