The benefit shall be the same as that provided by N.J.S.A. 43:15A-46.

There will be no refund of Prosecutors Part employee contributions if a PERS disability retirement benefit is elected; nor will there be a refund of the difference in employee contribution rates between the Prosecutors Part and regular PERS service.
