Neither Program nor Fund

    The DSRS employer contribution rate is determined by the CPRB Board based on the annual actuarial valuation for the plan. The bill removes the 10.5% limit on the employer contribution rate to allow for proper funding of the plan.
    The bill does not increase any benefits payable under the Plan and therefore has no impact on either the Normal Cost nor the Actuarial Accrued Liabilities of the Plan.
    The bill could result in an increase in employer contributions above 10.5% of payroll if actuarially necessary and subject to Board action. Such increase would represent an increase in the funding incidence and not increased costs to DSRS.
    Each 1% of payroll currently represents about $411,000 in annual employer contributions.
