353F.05 AUTHORIZATION FOR ADDITIONAL ALLOWABLE SERVICE FOR
CERTAIN EARLY RETIREMENT PURPOSES.
For the purpose of determining eligibility for early retirement benefits provided under
section 353.30, subdivision 1a, of the edition of Minnesota Statutes published in the year before
the year in which the privatization occurred, and notwithstanding any provision of chapter 353,
to the contrary, the years of allowable service for a terminated medical facility or other public
employing unit employee who transfers employment on the effective date and does not apply
for a refund of contributions under section 353.34, subdivision 1, of the edition of Minnesota
Statutes published in the year before the year in which the privatization occurred, or any similar
provision, includes service with the successor employer to the medical facility or other public
employing unit following the effective date. The successor employer shall provide any reports
that the executive director of the Public Employees Retirement Association may reasonably
request to permit calculation of benefits.
To be eligible for early retirement benefits under this section, the individual must separate
from service with the successor employer to the medical facility. The terminated eligible
individual, or an individual authorized to act on behalf of that individual, may apply for an
annuity following application procedures under section 353.29, subdivision 4.
