INTRODUCED

HB 1955 -- St. Louis Police Retirement

Sponsor:  O'Toole

This bill extensively revises the provisions of the St. Louis
city police retirement plan.  Most of the changes are technical,
making terminology consistent, updating out-of-date references,
and eliminating obsolete provisions.  Among its more substantive
changes are the following:

(1)  Clarifying the definition of "earnable compensation,"
adding specifics about included and excluded elements;

(2)  Authorizing the appointment of a fourth physician to the
medical board to act as an administrator and, with the
retirement board's consent, to appoint the members of the
medical board;

(3)  Clarifying how the benefit cap is applied;

(4)  For the surviving spouse of a deceased member, including
one who is receiving special consultant benefits, stipulating
that the benefits run until the earlier of the spouse's death or
remarriage and specifying that benefits for the surviving spouse
of a member who died in service after age 55 or 20 years of
service will be increased in the same manner as the service
retirement allowance of a retired member;

(5)  Prohibiting dependent benefits for a disabled child over 18
who lives in a public-supported institution;

(6)  Clarifying the effect of reemployment on the distribution
of a member's individual account;

(7)  Deleting out-of-date provisions relating to the technical
handling of certain funds within the system; and

(8)  Requiring the board to honor a member's obligation to pay
child support or maintenance when ordered by the court.
