2B:11-7. Transfer to the Public Employees' Retirement System
7. a. Any transferred employee who is a member of a county pension fund or retirement system shall become a member of the Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) on January 1, 1995, subject to the same conditions and entitled to the same rights and benefits applicable to other employees of the State. Any credit for public service which has been established in the county pension fund or retirement system for the transferred employee shall be credited to the transferred employee under PERS. The contribution rate of the member of PERS shall be determined in the manner set forth in section 25 of P.L.1954, c.84 (C.43:15A-25), except that the number of years of service under the county pension fund or retirement system credited under PERS shall be deducted from the member's age in determining the age upon which the contribution rate is based.
b. No later than May 1, 1995, the county pension fund or retirement system in which a transferred employee is a member shall remit to PERS the accumulated deductions of the transferred employee to the county pension fund or retirement system, and a pro rata part of the employer contributions to the fund or system constituting the employer's obligation to the fund or system for the transferred employee. The actuary of PERS shall determine the liability for service under a county pension fund or retirement system credited under PERS under this act. If the sum of the accumulated transferred employee deductions and the pro rata part of the employer contributions are less than the liability determined by the actuary, the difference shall be paid by the county in the same manner and over the remaining time period for the accrued liability of PERS as provided in section 24 of P.L.1954, c.84 (C.43:15A-24). The county and the county pension fund or retirement system shall provide the Division of Pensions and Benefits any information it may require to administer this act.
