    Bill allows new survivor options to be elected upon remarriage of retiree. If divorced, benefit may not be encumbered due to QDRO or other divorce property settlement.
    
    All new options are calculated to be the actuarial equivalent of the member’s benefit in effect prospectively on the selection date.
    
    Since all benefits are to be calculated as actuarial equivalent to existing benefits, there is no direct benefit cost for the bill. Some “adverse selection” considerations might have a minor impact on future benefits.

Explanation of above estimates
    The bill expands certain benefit rights to retirees, but does not impact the actuarial present value of the benefits being provided. Therefore, the bill is deemed not to increase benefit costs. Certain administrative changes will need to be implemented but are included in current CPRB administrative charges to the Plan.
Analysis of Impact on Public Pension Policy
    The bill expands retired member rights. Certain beneficiary benefits to prior spouses may be curtailed if not protected by a QDRS or other divorce property settlement.
