Subject of Possible Rule Making: Law enforcement officers' and fire fighters' Plan 1 (L1) flexible survivor options.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.50.050.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This amendment will implement ESB 5873, which provides a new window of time for qualified L1 retirees to select a survivor option for a postretirement spouse or registered domestic partner. The amendment will also correct WAC 415-104-202 to reflect that more than one postretirement survivor option may be permitted. The rule will be reviewed in its entirety to determine if additional clarification or corrections are needed.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jilene Siegel, Rules Coordinator, Department of Retirement Systems, P.O. Box 48380, Olympia, WA 98504-8380, e-mail, phone (360) 664-7291.
