Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023
(a) At the time of retirement, a member enrolled on the basis of service as a prosecutor, or on a combination of service as a prosecutor and regular PERS service, shall be permitted to elect the largest possible retirement allowance, if the member qualifies for benefits under both the provisions of N.J.S.A. 43:15A-1 et seq., and 43:15A-155 et seq., and the combined service provides a higher benefit. The member may elect any PERS retirement benefit for which the member qualifies, including early retirement pursuant to N.J.S.A. 43:15A-41, veteran's retirement pursuant to N.J.S.A. 43:15A-61, and service retirement pursuant to N.J.S.A. 43:15A-48. A prosecutor who elects to receive a regular PERS retirement benefit instead of a prosecutor's benefit, and has 10 or more years of service credit, will have a death benefit equal to 3/16 of the last 12 months of salary upon retirement.
(b) A prosecutor electing to receive a retirement allowance under the Prosecutors Part shall be ineligible to receive a retirement allowance or pension for the same service under any other law of the State.
(c) There will be no refund of Prosecutors Part employee contributions if a regular PERS benefit is elected; nor, will there be a refund of the difference in employee contribution rates between the Prosecutors Part and regular PERS.
