97B.74 Reinstatement as a vested member (buy-back).

A vested or retired member who was a member of the system at any time on or after July 4, 1953, and who received a refund of the member's contributions for that period of membership service, may elect in writing to the department to make contributions to the system for all or a portion of the period of membership service for which a refund of contributions was made, and receive credit for the period of membership service for which contributions are made. The contributions repaid by the member for such service shall be equal to the accumulated contributions, as defined in section 97B.41, subsection 2, received by the member for the applicable period of membership service, plus interest on the accumulated contributions for the applicable period, from the date of receipt by the member to the date of repayment, at the interest rate provided in section 97B.70 applicable for each year compounded as provided in section 97B.70.

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.

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.
