Upon the effective date of this section, the finance board shall establish and maintain a reserve fund for the purposes of offsetting unanticipated claim losses in any fiscal year. Beginning with the fiscal year two thousand two plan and for each succeeding fiscal year plan, the finance board shall transfer ten percent of the projected total plan costs for that year into the reserve fund, which is to be certified by the actuary and included in the final, approved financial plan submitted to the Governor and Legislature in accordance with the provisions of this article. Any moneys saved in a plan year shall be transferred into the reserve fund. At the close of any fiscal year in which the balance in the reserve fund exceeds the recommended reserve amount by fifteen percent, the executive director shall transfer that amount to the West Virginia Retiree Health Benefit Trust Fund created in section two, article sixteen-d of this chapter.
