With respect to a state employee member who dies or retires on or after July 1, 1991, and who was a managerial or supervisory employee, as defined by subdivisions (e) and (g) of Section 3513 of the Government Code, whose monthly salary range was administratively reduced by 5 percent because of the salary range reductions administratively imposed upon managers and supervisors during the 1991-92 fiscal year, "final compensation" means the highest annual compensation the state employee member would have earned had his or her salary range not been reduced by the 5-percent reduction. This section shall only apply if the period during which the state member's salary was reduced would have otherwise been included in determining his or her final compensation for retirement purposes. The costs, if any, that may result from the use of the higher final compensation shall be paid for by the employer at the time of retirement in a manner prescribed by the system.
