97B.73A Part-time county attorneys.

A part-time county attorney may elect in writing to the department to make employee contributions to the system for the county attorney's previous service as a county attorney and receive credit for membership service in the system for the applicable period of service as a part-time county attorney for which employee contributions are made. The contributions paid by the member shall be equal to the accumulated contributions, as defined in section 97B.41, subsection 2, for the applicable period of membership service. A member making contributions pursuant to this section may make the contributions either for the entire applicable period of service, or for portions of the period of service, and if contributions are made for portions of the period of service, the contributions shall be in increments of one or more calendar quarters. A member who elects to make contributions under this section shall notify the applicable county board of supervisors of the member's election, and the county board of supervisors shall pay to the department the employer contributions that would have been contributed by the employer under section 97B.11, plus interest on the contributions that would have accrued if the county attorney had been a member of the system for the applicable period of service.

Effective July 1, 1988, a member eligible for an increased retirement allowance because of the payment of contributions under this section is entitled to receipt of retroactive adjustment payments for no more than six months immediately preceding the month in which written notice was submitted to the department.

However, the department shall ensure that the member, in exercising an option provided in this section, does not exceed the amount of annual additions to a member's account permitted pursuant to section 415 of the federal Internal Revenue Code.
