HB16-1028 - FPPA Statewide Death & Disab Plan Modifications

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Modifications To The Statewide Death And Disability Plan Administered By The Fire And Police Pension Association.

Police Officers' and Firefighters' Pension Reform Commission.

A member of the fire and police pension association (FPPA) who has a temporary disability and returns to work or retires can receive contributions from the statewide death and disability plan to the member's normal retirement plan for his or her time on temporary disability. This allows the member to receive a full retirement benefit. Current law requires a transfer from the statewide death and disability plan to the member's normal retirement plan at the rate of 16% of the member's monthly base salary for the time that the member received temporary disability benefits, even if the contribution rate for the member's normal retirement plan was less than 16%. The bill changes the contribution rate to an amount equal to the employer and employee contribution rate being made to the member's normal retirement plan at the time of the disability, not to exceed 16% of the member's monthly base salary.

Currently, FPPA employers are required to ask prospective employees to complete a statewide standard health history form, and the prospective employees are required to complete the form before they may begin employment. The bill changes this requirement and now requires that a newly hired FPPA member complete and submit the form to the FPPA within 30 days of the newly hired member's first day of employment.
