WVC 5 - 16 D- 6 §5-16D-6. Mandatory employer contributions.
(a) The board shall annually set the total annual required contribution sufficient to maintain the fund in an actuarially sound manner in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

(b) The board shall annually allocate to the respective employers the employer's portion of the annual required contribution, which allocated amount is the "employer annual required contribution".

(c) The board may apportion the annual required contribution into various components. These components may include the amortized unfunded actuarial accrued liability, the total normal cost, the employer annual required contribution and the lesser included minimum annual employer payment. In the board's annual apportionment of the annual required contribution, any amounts of the minimum annual employer payment apportioned to reduce the amortized unfunded actuarial accrued liability shall not be treated as premium by the board in the finance plan but, rather, shall be treated as contributions to prefund other post-employment benefits.

(d) Employers shall make annual contributions to the fund in, at least, the amount of the minimum annual employer payment rates established by the board.

(e) The Public Employees Insurance Agency shall bill each employer for the employer annual required contribution and the included minimum annual employer payment. The Public Employees Insurance Agency shall annually collect the minimum annual employer payment. The Public Employees Insurance Agency shall, in addition to the minimum annual employer payment, collect any amounts the employer elects to pay toward the employer annual required contribution. Any employer annual required contribution amount not satisfied by the respective employer shall remain the liability of that employer until fully paid.
