353.651 RETIREMENT ANNUITY UPON SEPARATION FROM PUBLIC SERVICE.

Subdivision 1.Age and allowable service requirements.

Upon separation from public service, any police officer or firefighter member who has attained the age of at least 55 years and who received credit for not less than three years of allowable service is entitled upon application to a retirement annuity. Such retirement annuity is known as the "normal" retirement annuity.

Subd. 2.

[Repealed, 1Sp2005 c 8 art 1 s 32]

Subd. 3.Retirement annuity formula.

The average salary as defined in section 353.01, subdivision 17a, multiplied by the percent specified in section 356.315, subdivision 6, per year of allowable service determines the amount of the normal retirement annuity. If the member has earned allowable service for performing services other than those of a police officer or firefighter, the annuity representing that service must be computed under sections 353.29 and 353.30.

Subd. 4.Early retirement.

(a) A person who becomes a police and fire plan member after June 30, 2007, or a former member who is reinstated as a member of the plan after that date, who is at least 50 years of age with at least three years of allowable service, upon the termination of public service is entitled upon application to a retirement annuity equal to the normal annuity calculated under subdivision 3, reduced by two-tenths of one percent for each month that the member is under age 55 at the time of retirement.

(b) Upon the termination of public service, any police and fire plan member not specified in paragraph (a), upon attaining at least 50 years of age with at least three years of allowable service is entitled upon application to a retirement annuity equal to the normal annuity calculated under subdivision 3, reduced by one-tenth of one percent for each month that the member is under age 55 at the time of retirement.

Subd. 5.Postretirement adjustment eligibility.

An annuity under this section is eligible for postretirement adjustments under section 356.415.
