Rule 145-2-10 | Intersystem transfers with non-uniform systems.

 

(A) This rule amplifies section 145.37 of the Revised Code and applies to members who retire with an effective date of retirement on or after February 1, 2013.

(B) For the purpose of this rule:

(1) "State retirement system" and "retention percentage" have the same meanings as in section 145.37 of the Revised Code.

(2) "Fiscal year" means, for the public employees retirement system, a calendar year and, for the school employees retirement system and state teachers retirement system, the twelve-month period beginning on July first and ending on June thirtieth.

(C) For purposes of determining the amount transferred under division (B)(6)(a) of section 145.37 of the Revised Code, all of the following apply:

(1) The amount contributed by the member includes any amounts paid to restore service credit under section 145.31 of the Revised Code.

(2) The amount of employer contributions shall be determined using the lesser of the employer contribution rate in effect at the beginning of the fiscal year for each of the state retirement systems involved in the transfer, less the retention percentage.

(3) Any amounts paid by the member to purchase service credit shall include, if applicable, any amounts paid by the employer to purchase service credit.

(4) Except as provided in this paragraph, interest shall be calculated beginning on the first day of the fiscal year following the year in which the contributions were made and ending on the last day of the month in which the transfer occurs. If the amount to be transferred includes any amounts paid to purchase service credit, other than amounts paid to restore service credit under section 145.31 of the Revised Code, interest on the amounts paid to purchase service credit shall be calculated beginning on the first day of the month following the last payment to purchase the credit and ending on the last day of month in which the transfer occurs. For each year of service credit to be transferred, the interest rate shall be determined by using the lesser of the actuarial assumption rate in effect at the beginning of the fiscal year for each of the state retirement systems involved in the transfer.

(D) If a member of the public employees retirement system has contributions to more than one employer division of the system, the employer contribution rate for the system shall be determined using the last division to which the member contributed. If the period of service and contributions to be transferred includes service that occurred prior to the date the members most recent division was established, the other state retirement systems shall use the employer contribution rate for the other system for that year.

(E) For purposes of calculating a retirement or disability benefit under division (B) of section 145.37 of the Revised Code, all of the following apply:

(1) Except as provided in this paragraph, the service credit and contributions certified by the transferring system shall be divided equally over the number of months in the service credit period certified by the transferring system beginning on the first day of the service credit period and ending on the last day of the service credit period.

(2) Service credit certified by the tranferring system shall be reduced for any month that the member earned full-time service credit in this system. If the member earned less than full-time service credit in this system for any month, the service credit certified by the transferring system may be added to the earned credit to equal full-time service credit.

(3) Except as provided in division (B)(5)(c) of section 134.37 of the Revised Code, service credit certified by the transferring system shall not be reduced for any month that the member did not earn service credit in this system.
