§1521.1.  Additional monthly benefit; computation

In addition to the regular retirement benefits provided by R.S. 11:1521, upon regular retirement, any member who received per-page transcription payments shall be paid an additional monthly regular retirement benefit computed as follows:  the monthly average of the six highest consecutive or joined calendar years during which a member received such payments and was a member of the fund for the full calendar year, multiplied by the number of calendar years that the member received such payments, provided that the credit for any calendar year that such payments were paid shall not exceed the regular retirement credit earned for that calendar year, and further multiplied by the regular retirement accrual rate applicable to the time that the credit for earning such payments was earned.  If a member has credit for earning such payments for less than six years, the monthly average of the actual number of calendar years during which the member received such payments shall be used to determine this additional benefit.  Any court reporter employed by either Orleans Parish or East Baton Rouge Parish for which employee and employer contributions have been previously paid to the fund and are on deposit with the fund from per-page transcription payments occurring on or before July 1, 2001, shall receive credit for those years in which such contributions were paid to the fund, and the per-page transcription payments that were earned by such reporters shall be used for determining the additional monthly retirement benefit provided for in this Section.

Acts 2001, No. 739, §1, eff. July 1, 2001.

NOTE:  See Acts 2001, No. 739, §2, relative to credit for per-page transcription payments prior to July 1, 2001, and payment of costs thereof.
