(B) For each eligible recipient of a benefit payable under section 3307.58, 3307.59, or 3307.60 of the Revised Code, the state teachers retirement board shall recalculate the annual single lifetime benefit, excluding any increases granted under section 3307.67 of the Revised Code, of the benefit payable to the recipient using division (B) of section 3307.38 of the Revised Code as that section existed immediately prior to the effective date of this section, except that the recalculated annual single lifetime benefit shall be adjusted by the per cent shown in the schedule in the version of division (B) of section 3307.38 of the Revised Code that was in effect at the time the initial recipient's benefit was calculated on the basis of age and service.
(C) If the amount determined under division (B) of this section is greater than the annual single lifetime benefit granted the recipient, the board shall recalculate the recipient's benefit so that it equals the annual single lifetime benefit determined under division (B) of this section or its actuarial equivalent.
