WVC 18 - 7 C- ARTICLE 7C. MERGER OF TEACHERS' DEFINED CONTRIBUTION RETIREMENT SYSTEM WITH STATE TEACHERS RETIREMENT SYSTEM.

WVC 18 - 7 C- 1 §§18-7C-1 to 18-7C-14.
Repealed.

Acts, 2008 1ES. Sess., Ch. 7.

WVC 18 - 7 C- 2 §18-7C-2. Legislative findings and purpose.
(a) The Legislature declares that the State of West Virginia and its citizens have always believed in a strong public education system. The Constitution of this state mandates a thorough and efficient public education system. The Legislature notes that the quality of our state's education system is dependent, inter alia, upon the motivation and quality of its teachers and educational service personnel.

(b) The Legislature finds and declares that the State of West Virginia is privileged to be the home of some of the best teachers and education service personnel in this nation and that our teachers and education service personnel are dedicated and hard-working individuals. The Legislature further finds and declares that our teachers and education service personnel deserve a retirement program whereby they know in advance what their retirement benefit will be, a defined benefit retirement program where our teachers and service personnel will not have to bear the risk of investment performance to receive their full retirement benefit. The Legislature notes that uncertainty exists in the investment markets, especially in the post-September eleventh era, and that placing this risk and uncertainty upon the state in the form of a defined benefit plan will protect and ensure a meaningful retirement benefit for our teachers and educational service personnel.

(c) The Legislature declares that it is in the best interests of the teachers and public education in this state, and conducive to the fiscal solvency of the State Teachers Retirement System, that the Teachers' Defined Contribution Retirement System be merged with the State Teachers Retirement System.

(d) The Legislature also finds that a fiscally sound retirement program with an ascertainable benefit aids in the retention and recruitment of teachers and school service personnel and that the provisions of this article are designed to accomplish the goals set forth in this section.

(e) The Legislature has studied this matter diligently and in making the determination to merge the two plans has availed itself of an actuarial study of the proposed merger by the actuary of the Consolidated Public Retirement Board and has engaged the service of two independent actuaries.

(f) The Legislature further finds and declares that members of a defined contribution system who must bear the attendant market risk and performance of their investments are truly being provided a significant and greater benefit where the defined contribution system is replaced with a defined benefit system in which the employer bears the risk of market fluctuations and investment performance, especially where those members decide through an election process whether to trade the defined contribution system for a defined benefit system.

WVC 18 - 7 C- 3 §18-7C-3. Definitions.
As used in this article, unless the context clearly requires a different meaning:

(1) "Assets" means all member contributions and employer contributions made on the member's behalf to the Defined Contribution Retirement System and earnings thereon, less any applicable fees as approved by the board: Provided, That if a member has withdrawn or cashed out any amounts, the amounts must have been repaid.

(2) "Board" means the Consolidated Public Retirement Board established in article ten-d, chapter five of this code, and its employees.

(3) "Date of merger" means, in the event of a positive vote on the merger, the first day of July, two thousand six.

(4) "Defined Contribution Retirement System" means the Teachers' Defined Contribution Retirement System established in article seven-b of this chapter.

(B) For a member not contributing to the Defined Contribution Retirement System during the two thousand five fiscal year, the contract salary on the date of rehire.

WVC 18 - 7 C- 6 §18-7C-6. Conversion of assets from Defined Contribution Retirement System to State Teachers Retirement System; contributions; loans.
(a) If a majority of members voting elect to merge the Defined Contribution Retirement System into the State Teachers Retirement System:

(b) Following the election, if the vote is in favor of the merger, the board shall transfer all properties held in the Defined Contribution Retirement System's Trust Fund to the State Teachers Retirement System.

(c) To receive full credit in the State Teachers Retirement System for service in the Defined Contribution Retirement System for which assets are transferred, members shall pay into the State Teachers Retirement System a one and one-half percent contribution. This contribution shall be calculated as one and one-half percent of the member's estimated total earnings for which assets are transferred. Except as otherwise provided in this section, each member shall pay the contribution required no later than the thirtieth day of June, two thousand seven.

(1) For a member contributing to the Defined Contribution Retirement System at any time during the two thousand five fiscal year and commencing membership in the State Teachers Retirement System on the first day of July, two thousand six:

(A) The estimated total earnings shall be calculated based on the member's salary and the member's age nearest birthday on the thirtieth day of June, two thousand five;

(B) This calculation shall apply both an annual backward salary scale from that date for prior years' salaries and a forward salary scale for the salary for the two thousand six fiscal year.

(2) For a member not contributing to the Defined Contribution Retirement System during the two thousand five fiscal year:

(A) The estimated total earnings shall be calculated based on the member's salary and the member's age nearest birthday on the member's date of rehire.

(B) This calculation shall apply a backward salary scale from the member's date of rehire for prior years' salaries.

(3) The calculations in subdivisions (1) and (2) of this subsection are based upon the salary scale assumption applied in the West Virginia Teachers Retirement System Actuarial Valuation as of the first day of July, two thousand four, prepared for the Consolidated Public Retirement Board. This salary scale shall be applied regardless of breaks in service.

(d) The board shall make available to each member a loan for the purpose of paying all or part of the one and one-half percent contribution required in this section. The loan shall be offered in accordance with the provisions of section thirty-four, article seven-a of this chapter.

(4) Upon returning to employment, a member who has left employment but not withdrawn his or her funds shall pay the one and one-half percent contribution within one year of being rehired. The member is eligible for one year following the date of rehire to obtain a loan for paying the contribution.

(e) The board shall develop and institute a payroll deduction program for repayment of the loan established in this section.

(f) If the merger and consolidation is duly elected:

(1) A member may repay those amounts he or she previously cashed out or withdrew, along with interest as determined by the board, and receive the same credit as if the withdrawal or cash-out never occurred. Such a member also shall pay the one and one-half percent contribution to receive full credit for the cashed-out or withdrawn amounts being repaid to the State Teachers Retirement System.

(2) The loan provided in this section is not available to members to repay previously cashed out or withdrawn moneys.

(3) If the repayment occurs five or more years following the cash-out or withdrawal, the member also shall repay any forfeited employer contribution account balance along with interest determined by the board.

(h) Notwithstanding any provision of subsection (g) to the contrary, if a member has cashed out or withdrawn any of his or her assets after the last day of June, two thousand one, and that member chooses to repurchase that service after the thirtieth day of June, two thousand six, the member shall repay the previously distributed amounts and any applicable interest to the State Teachers Retirement System.
