When a member of the fund ceases to be eligible under the terms of this chapter to
participate in the fund, the member may, after a period of one hundred twenty days,
withdraw from the fund and is then entitled to receive a refund of assessments accumulated
with interest. The one-hundred-twenty-day requirement may be waived by the board when it has evidence
the teacher will not be returning to teach in North Dakota. The refund is in lieu of any other benefits to which the member may be entitled
under the terms of this chapter, and by accepting the refund, the member is waiving
any right to participate in the fund under the same provisions that existed at the
time the refund was accepted regardless of whether the member later repurchases refunded
service credit. A member or a beneficiary of a member may elect, at the time and under rules adopted
by the board, to have any portion of an eligible rollover distribution paid directly
in a direct rollover to an eligible retirement plan specified by the member or the
beneficiary to the extent permitted by section 401(a)(31) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended.
