AS 39.35.710. Defined Contribution Retirement Plan Established; Federal Qualification Requirements.

(a) A defined contribution retirement plan is established for employees of the state or a political subdivision or public organization of the state.

(b) The defined contribution retirement plan is a plan in which savings are accumulated in an individual retirement 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 retirement plan established by AS AS 39.35.700 - 39.35.990 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, for the employees of political subdivisions, public corporations, and public organizations of the state, and for the employees of other employers whose participation is authorized by AS 39.35.700 - 39.35.990 and who participate in the plan set out in AS 39.35.700 - 39.35.990. Benefits under AS 39.35.880 are not provided by the defined contribution retirement plan.

(d) An amendment to AS 39.35.700 - 39.35.990 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.
