2006 Louisiana Laws - RS 11:2225.1 — Amendment
A. The provisions of the retirement system established by R.S. 11:2211 may be amended by action of the legislature in the same manner as any other statute may be amended by the legislature. In addition, action of the board with respect to the payment of cost-of-living adjustments, as provided in R.S. 11:2225(A)(7); with respect to the payment of employee contributions, as provided in R.S. 11:154; and with respect to actuarial assumptions, as provided in R.S. 11:2225(D), shall be considered amendments to the provisions of the retirement system.
B. No amendment to this retirement system shall operate to deprive any member of a benefit to which he is already entitled. In the case of any merger or consolidation with, or transfer of assets or liabilities to, another retirement system, each member in the retirement system would, if the retirement system is then terminated, receive a benefit immediately after the merger, consolidation, or transfer which is equal to or greater than the benefit he would have been entitled to receive immediately before the merger, consolidation, or transfer, if the retirement system had then terminated.
C. Upon the termination or partial termination of the retirement system or upon the discontinuance of contributions by the employer without formal termination of the retirement system, the board of trustees shall reevaluate and redetermine the benefit of each member in accordance with law, and the entire benefit of each member may be paid or commence to be paid and distributed to such member, or in the case of his death before such distribution, to the beneficiary or beneficiaries designated by such member, or may be held until payment otherwise due under the provisions of the retirement system. A member's right to his benefit is not conditioned upon a sufficiency of plan assets in the event of termination.
