[ Filed July 23, 2002, 8:15 a.m. ]

     Original Notice.

     Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 02-11-078.

     Title of Rule: Actuarial tables, schedules, and factors.

     Purpose: The Office of the State Actuary published a 1995 – 2000 actuarial experience study in January 2002 which included updated actuarial factors. The Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) is updating WACs to reflect new actuarial projections. At the same time, DRS is making the WACs easier to understand and including examples to help members, retirees, and beneficiaries understand how to use the charts. DRS is also consolidating the charts into one location in the WACs. DRS has also consolidated the charts, to meet the regulatory reform objective of cutting down on the total number of pages of WACs. The new WACs are WAC 415-02-300, 415-02-320, 415-02-340, 415-02-360, 415-02-380, and 415-103-300. The amended WACs are WAC 415-104-108, 415-108-340, 415-110-340, and 415-112-040.

ACTUARIAL TABLES, SCHEDULES, AND FACTORS
NEW SECTION
WAC 415-02-300   How does the department use actuarial tables, schedules, and factors?   (1) The department uses actuarial tables, schedules, and factors to calculate optional retirement allowances for members, retirees, and beneficiaries.

     (2) The department adopted these tables, schedules, and factors upon the office of the state actuary's (OSA) recommendation, following OSA's investigation into the mortality, service, compensation, and other experience of retirement plan members, retirees, and beneficiaries.

     (3) These tables, schedules, and factors may be amended from time to time, based upon subsequent actuarial investigation.

     (4) The department uses the tables, schedules, and factors in effect at the time of the member's retirement to calculate the member's retirement allowance.

     (5) The department will use these tables, schedules, and factors to process any payments when there is a death in service.

     (6) The tables, schedules, and factors in this chapter apply to the calculation of retirement allowances for those who retire on or after September 1, 2002, (until subsequent amendment).

[]


NEW SECTION
WAC 415-02-320   Early retirement factors.   (1) What are early retirement factors (ERF)? Early retirement factors (ERFs) are the factors the department uses to reduce your normal monthly benefit payments to reflect an earlier starting date of paying benefits and a longer payment schedule.1

1The actuarial reduction takes into account that (1), retirees who begin drawing benefits at a younger age generally receive benefits over a longer time, and (2), member and employer contributions intended to provide for the defined benefit at the typical retirement age will be adequate to fund only a smaller benefit at an earlier age.

     (2) What is a "normal" monthly benefit payment? A "normal" monthly benefit payment is the amount you would receive if you met the plan-specific criteria as to age and length of service before you retire.

     (3) What happens if you die before becoming eligible for a normal monthly benefit payment?

     (a) Generally speaking, within the plans listed in the table in this section, the department may pay a monthly benefit to your surviving spouse or minor children. If you die before being eligible for retirement, or when you are eligible only for retirement with an actuarially reduced benefit, the department will reduce the benefit paid to your surviving spouse or minor children by the ERF corresponding to the amount of time between your age at death and the age at which you would have been eligible for an unreduced retirement benefit. (Exception: A TRS Plan 1 reduction is based on the earliest date a member would have first qualified if the member had continued in service.)

     (b) There are differences among plans; please consult your plan for specific, detailed information.

     (4) Examples

     (a) Example (a) (early retirement):

     Sandy, a PERS Plan 2 member, applies for retirement at age 56 years and one month with a total of 21.11 years of service. Her average final compensation (AFC) is $3,500.00. PERS Plan 2 provides for two percent (.02) of AFC per year of service. Within PERS Plan 2, age 65 is the normal retirement age, but an actuarially reduced monthly retirement is available at an age as young as 55 if the member has at least 20 years of service credit. If Sandy retires now, she would be doing so eight years and eleven months early. According to the table, the ERF for retirement eight years and eleven months early is .4025. To determine the reduced monthly benefit, PERS will multiply Sandy's AFC of $3,500 x .02 x 21.11 (service credit years) x .4025 (ERF). Sandy's monthly retirement benefit will be $594.77.

     (b) Example (b) (member's death):

     Robert, a 56-year-old TRS Plan 1 active member, dies April 1, 2003, with 23.17 years of service at two percent (.02) of AFC per year of service. His AFC was $3,171.74. TRS Plan 1 allows for normal retirement at age 55 with 25 years of service. Since Robert was not fully qualified for retirement, his wife, Karen, who is 58 years old, is eligible for an actuarially reduced benefit based on the earliest date Robert would have first qualified for the normal retirement benefit, reduced by the Option 2 survivor factor. Survivor factors are based on the age difference between the member and the survivor. Robert was over 55; if he had continued in service, he would be eligible for retirement in one year and ten months, when he would have completed 25 years of service. According to the actuary tables, the ERF for one year and ten months is .8530, and the Option 2 survivor factor for a beneficiary two years older is .913 (see WAC 415-02-380(11)). To determine the reduced monthly benefit to which Karen is entitled, TRS would multiply 23.17 (Robert's service credit years) x .02 x $3,171.74 (AFC) x .8530 (ERF) x .913 (the Option 2 factor). Karen's monthly benefit will be $1,144.65.

WAC 415-02-340   Monthly benefit per $1.00 of accumulation for defined benefit plans.   (1) How does the department use the information in the table called "monthly benefit per $1.00 of accumulation for defined benefit plans"? The department uses this information to:

     (a) Determine what a future lifetime monthly benefit is worth in present-day dollars;

     (b) Determine the equivalent value of a lump sum when compared with monthly payments; and

     (c) Reduce the monthly retirement benefit in TRS Plan 1 if you take a lump sum cash out for some or all of your funds.2

2This option is only available in TRS Plan 1.

     (2) What type of information is in this table? The information in this table reflects the expected duration of lifetime payments for recipients over a range of ages. These values differ by system and plan, and all reflect an assumed rate of return of 8.0%.3

3The younger a person is, the longer the anticipated lifetime of payments would be, and the greater the sum required to provide for these payments. Put another way, the amount of monthly lifetime benefit that a present-day dollar buys goes up as the remaining life expectancy of the recipient goes down.

     (3) Examples

     (a) Example (a):

     Celina is a 65-year-old PERS Plan 2 member who is eligible to receive $45.00 per month. She wants to know how much money she could receive if she accepted a lump sum payment instead. Celina looks at the row in the table for age 65 in the PERS Plan 2 column and learns that $0.0072458 per month for life is equivalent to one dollar in cash for this system, plan, and age class. Celina divides $45.00 by 0.0072458 and learns that her lump sum payment would be $6,210.49.

     (b) Example (b):

     Fred is a 58-year-old TRS Plan 1 member. The balance in Fred's account is $124,934.00. Upon retirement, Fred chooses to withdraw the $124,934.00 (as only members of TRS Plan 1 can do). From the row in the table for age 58 in the TRS Plan 1 column, Fred learns that $0.0077573 per month for life is the equivalent to one dollar in cash for this system, plan, and age class. Fred multiplies the lump sum cash-out amount of $124,934.00 by 0.0077573, and learns that his monthly retirement will be reduced by $969.15 per month because of the lump sum cash out made at retirement.

     (4) Table - Monthly benefit per $1.00 of accumulation for defined benefit plans:

     Based on the 1995-2000 actuarial experience study monthly benefit per $1.00 of accumulation defined benefit (DB) single life pension:

WAC 415-02-360   What is the optional cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for PERS Plan 1 and TRS Plan 1?   (1) At the time of retirement, if you are a PERS Plan 1 or TRS Plan 1 member, you can choose initially reduced retirement payment benefits that will provide you with annual cost of living adjustments in the future.

     For more information, see:

     PERS Plan 1: RCW 41.40.188 (1)(e); WAC 415-108-326(4)

     TRS Plan 1: RCW 41.32.530 (1)(d); WAC 415-112-727(4)

     (2) By opting to receive a lower dollar amount at the beginning of your retirement, you will receive a progressively higher amount as the payments continue.

     (3) Examples

     (a) Example (a):

     Ernie, a TRS Plan 1 member, retires at age 55 with 30 years of service and chooses the COLA option. TRS Plan 1 provides two percent (.02) of average final compensation (AFC) per year of service. At the time he retires, Ernie's AFC is $4,295.33. As shown in the "Plan 1 Optional COLA" table below, Ernie would receive 0.7408 of his normal retirement benefit as the starting amount of the COLA-protected benefit. TRS would calculate the benefit as follows: 30.00 (years of service credit) x .02 x $4,295.33 (AFC) = $2,577.20 (monthly benefit without the COLA option). TRS would then multiply $2,577.20 x .7408 = $1,909.19 (the COLA-protected starting benefit Ernie would receive).

     (b) Example (b):

     Tina is a PERS Plan 1 member with 30 years of service credit at age 52 and eight months. Because she has reached 30 years of service, there is no reduction for an early retirement. However, Tina chooses the optional COLA. Tina would receive .7388 of her normal retirement benefit as the starting amount of the COLA-protected benefit. Her normal retirement benefit is $2,295.00; her COLA-reduced benefit will be $1,695.55.

     (4) Table - The optional cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) table is based on the 1995-2000 actuarial experience study.

     Use these factors to convert from standard option monthly benefit payments without a COLA to the same option with a COLA.

WAC 415-02-380   Survivor options factors.   (1) What is a "surviving beneficiary"? A surviving beneficiary is a person you designate when you retire who will receive benefit payments for the duration of his or her life, beginning at your death.

     (2) Will selecting a surviving beneficiary affect my retirement benefits? Yes. Retirees who select a surviving beneficiary retirement option receive smaller benefit payments upon retirement than those retirees who do not select this option.

     (3) Does it matter if I am married? Yes. If you are married, you must provide your spouse's written consent to the option you select. If you are married, and you and your spouse do not give written consent to an option, the department will pay you a joint and fifty percent survivor benefit and record your spouse as the beneficiary. For details, please review:

LEOFF Plan 2: RCW 41.26.460(2) WAC 415-104-211 and 415-104-215
PERS Plan 1: RCW 41.40.188(2) WAC 415-108-324 and 415-108-326
PERS Plan 2: RCW 41.40.660(2) WAC 415-108-324 and 415-108-326
PERS Plan 3: RCW 41.40.845(2) WAC 415-108-324 and 415-108-326
SERS Plans 2/3: RCW 41.35.220(2) WAC 415-110-324 and 415-110-326
TRS Plan 1: RCW 41.32.530(2) WAC 415-112-710 to 415-112-727
TRS Plan 2: RCW 41.32.785(2) WAC 415-112-710 to 415-112-727

WSPRS Plan 2: RCW 43.43.271(2) WAC 415-103-225

     (4) Why does the surviving beneficiary's age matter? The surviving beneficiary's age is used in determining the amount of the payments. The younger the surviving beneficiary, the longer he or she is expected to receive payments. The monthly benefit must be reduced accordingly.

     (5) What are the survivor options? The survivor options are described in detail within each plan. For details, please see the list in subsection (3) of this section.

     To summarize:

     Option 2 - Joint and 100 percent survivorship

     Option 3 - Joint and 50 percent survivorship

     Option 4 - Joint and 66.67 percent survivorship

     (6) Examples

     (a) Example (a):

     Kendra, a PERS Plan 2 member, chooses Option 3 (joint and 50 percent survivorship) at retirement. She names her nephew, Steve, as her surviving beneficiary. This means that Steve would receive half of Kendra's benefit amount after Kendra's death. Steve is 30 years younger than Kendra. PERS would use the survivor option factor table ("member older") to calculate the adjustment. With a 30-year age difference (member minus beneficiary), the value corresponding to PERS Plan 2 and Option 3 is 0.753. This value, 0.753, is multiplied against the amount Kendra would have received under Option 1. Kendra's retirement benefits will be reduced to about 75% of her Option 1 level.

     (b) Example (b):

     Mark, a LEOFF Plan 2 member, chooses Option 2 (joint and 100 percent survivorship) at retirement. He names his wife, Susan, as his surviving beneficiary. This means Susan would receive the same benefit amount Mark had received prior to his death. Mark is five years younger than Susan. LEOFF would use the survivor option factors table ("member younger") to calculate the adjustment for the age difference. With a 5-year age difference (member minus beneficiary), the value corresponding to LEOFF Plan 2 and Option 2 is 0.894. This value, 0.894, will be multiplied against the amount Mark would have received under Option 1. Mark's retirement benefits will be reduced to about 89 percent of his Option 1 level.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 02-03-120, filed 1/23/02, effective 3/1/02)

WAC 415-108-340   Actuarial tables, schedules, and factors.   ((This section contains)) See chapter 415-02 WAC starting with WAC 415-02-300 for the tables, schedules, and factors the department uses for calculating optional retirement allowances ((and postretirement adjustments)) of members of the Washington state public employees' retirement system (((PERS))). ((These tables, schedules, and factors were adopted by the director upon the recommendation of the state actuary after investigation into the mortality, service, compensation, and other experience of the PERS members and beneficiaries.

     (1) These tables, schedules and factors may be amended from time to time, based upon subsequent actuarial investigation.

     (2) The department will use the tables, schedules and factors in effect upon the member's retirement to calculate the member's retirement allowance. Accordingly, these values apply to the calculation of retirement allowances for those who retire on or after January 1, 1996 (until subsequent amendment).

     (3) The department will use these tables, schedules and factors to calculate postretirement adjustments that become effective on or after January 1, 1996, even though the member's retirement allowance was initially calculated using a prior set of tables, schedules and factors.
