AS 14.25.320. Defined Contribution Retirement Plan Established.

(a) A defined contribution retirement plan for teachers of the state is created.

(b) The defined contribution retirement plan includes a plan in which savings are accumulated in an individual account for the exclusive benefit of the member or beneficiaries. The plan is established effective July 1, 2006, at which time contributions by employers and members begin.

(c) The defined contribution retirement plan is intended to qualify under 26 U.S.C. 401(a), 414(d), and 414(k) (Internal Revenue Code) as a qualified retirement plan established and maintained by the state for its employees and for the employees of school districts and regional educational attendance areas in the state. Benefits under AS 14.25.480 are not provided by the defined contribution retirement plan.

(d) An amendment to the defined contribution retirement plan does not provide a person with a vested right to a benefit if the Internal Revenue Service determines that the amendment will result in disqualification of the plan under the Internal Revenue Code.
