Welcome to FindLaw's Cases & Codes, a free source of state and federal court opinions, state laws, and the United States Code. For more information about the legal concepts addressed by these cases and statutes, visit FindLaw's Learn About the Law.

(a) The actuary may, in determining contributions required of contracting agencies, establish a contribution with respect to industrial disability allowances, special death benefits, and any other death benefit, singly or in any combination, separate from and independent of the contribution required for other benefits under their contracts. The total contribution, in that case, for the agencies as a group shall be established and from time to time adjusted by actuarial valuation performed by the actuary of the liability for the benefit or benefits on account of the employees of all those agencies. Adjustments shall affect only future contributions and shall take into account the difference between contributions on hand and the amount required to fund the allowances or benefits for which entitlement has already been established as well as liability for future entitlements to benefits. The contribution as so established and adjusted from time to time shall be allocated between the agencies on a basis that, in the opinion of the board, after recommendation of the actuary, provides an equitable distribution between the agencies. However, the allocation shall not be based on differences in the incidence of death or disability in the respective agencies.

(b)(1) Whenever the board, pursuant to subdivision (a), establishes a separate contribution, it shall maintain the contribution and any contributions required to be made by employees towards the cost of the benefit or benefits as a separate account, which shall be available only for payment of the benefit or benefits and shall not be a part of the accumulated contributions under this system of any of the employers or members included.

(2) All contributions in that account, irrespective of the agency from which they were received, shall be available for payment of the benefit or benefits with respect to the employees of any agency included. In the event of termination of any agency's participation in this system, the liability with respect to all those benefits to which the agency's employees have become entitled, after establishment of the rate and prior to the termination, shall be its contributions, as established under subdivision (a), that have become due and payable as of the date of termination.
