VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO WAIVE THE PAYMENT OF EMPLOYEE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE SOUTH CAROLINA RETIREMENT SYSTEM AND THE SOUTH CAROLINA POLICE OFFICERS RETIREMENT SYSTEM, AS APPLICABLE, FOR STATE GOVERNMENT TERI PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS AND RETIREES OF THOSE TWO SYSTEMS WHO WERE IN COVERED EMPLOYMENT WITH THE STATE DURING THE BASE PERIOD, TO DEFINE "BASE PERIOD" AND "EMPLOYEE", AND TO REQUIRE THE EMPLOYER OF THE EMPLOYEES ELIGIBLE FOR THIS WAIVER TO MAKE THE EMPLOYEE CONTRIBUTIONS ON BEHALF OF THE EMPLOYEE.

(B) The waiver allowed by this joint resolution begins with respect to compensation paid an employee after the month in which this joint resolution is approved by the Governor and continues:
(1) in the case of an employee as defined in SECTION 1(A)(1), until the employee's TERI participation terminates; or
(2) in the case of an employee as defined in SECTION 1(A)(2), for so long as the employee continues in the same job the employee held during the base period.
SECTION 3. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
