2006 Louisiana Laws - RS 11:1343 — Benefit amount
§1343. Benefit amount
A. An excess benefit participant who is receiving benefits from the system's pension plan is entitled to a monthly benefit under this excess benefit plan in an amount equal to the lesser of:
(1) The member's unrestricted benefit less the maximum benefit; or
(2) The amount by which the member's monthly benefit from the system's pension plan has been reduced because of the limitations of R.S. 11:1336.
B. A retirement benefit payable under this excess benefit plan shall be paid in the form and at the time it would have been paid as a monthly pension under the system's pension plan except for the limitations under R.S. 11:1336 and Section 415 of the Internal Revenue Code. Each optional benefit form permitted under this excess benefit plan shall be the actuarial equivalent of each other permitted benefit form.
C. This plan shall be administered by the board. The rights, duties, and responsibilities of the board shall be the same for this excess benefit plan as for the system's pension plan as provided in this Title.
D. The actuary employed by the board shall determine the amount of benefits that may not be provided by the system solely because of the limitations of R.S. 11:1336 and Section 415 of the Internal Revenue Code and thus the amount of contributions that will be paid to the excess benefit plan rather than to the system's pension plan.
