AS 39.35.160. Amount of Employee Contributions.
- (a) Beginning January 1, 1987, each peace officer or fire fighter shall contribute to the plan an amount equal to seven
and one-half percent of the peace officer's or fire fighter's compensation. Except as provided in (d) of this section,
beginning January 1, 1987, each other employee shall contribute to the plan an amount equal to six and three-quarters
percent of the employee's compensation. The contributions shall be deducted by the employer at the end of each payroll
period. The contributions shall be deducted from employee compensation before computation of applicable federal taxes,
and the contributions shall be treated as employer contributions under 26 U.S.C. 414(h)(2). A member may not have the
option of making the payroll deduction directly instead of having the contribution picked up by the employer.
- (b) [Repealed, Sec. 6 ch 135 SLA 1980 and Sec. 39 ch 146 SLA 1980].
- (c) An employee who has made an election under AS 39.35.300
(c) or 39.35.310(c) to have the employee's years of
service as a noncertificated employee of a state boarding school, of a school district or regional educational
attendance area, of the special education service agency, or of the Alaska Vocational Technical Center determined by
reference to AS 14.25.220
shall pay a contribution surcharge for that service. The amount of the surcharge is the difference between the amount
the employer would have had to contribute under AS 39.35.250
- 39.35.290 for the employee when treating the
employee's credited service as service earned under AS 39.35.300
(c) or 39.35.310(c) less the amount the employer would
have had to contribute under AS 39.35.250
- 39.35.290 without treating the employee's credited
service as service earned under AS 39.35.300
(c) or 39.35.310(c).
- (d) The employer of a member who is employed by a school district, a regional educational attendance area, or a state
boarding school who is assaulted while on the job and who, as a result of a physical injury from the assault, is placed
on unpaid leave of absence or is receiving benefits under AS 23.30, shall pay the member's contributions under this section while
the member is, as a result of the on-the-job injury, on unpaid leave or receiving the benefits under AS 23.30.
