(a) A participant who is employed to perform creditable service subject to coverage by the Cash Balance Benefit Program while receiving an annuity under the program may terminate the annuity upon written request to the system and make contributions to the program based on salary paid by the employer for the employment, subject to the following conditions:
(1) The request for termination of the annuity is filed on a form prescribed by the system, and the form is executed no earlier than six months before the effective date of the termination.
(2) Termination of the participant's annuity shall become effective on the first day of the month designated by the participant.
(b) Upon termination of the annuity, the employee and employer account of the participant shall be credited with respective balances that reflect the actuarial equivalent of the participant's retirement benefit as of the date the participant terminates the annuity and the Annuitant Reserve shall be reduced by the amount of the credits.
(c) The portion of the annuity derived from the amounts credited to the employee account and employer account, as of the date the participant terminates the annuity, shall be calculated using the actuarial assumptions in effect on the initial retirement date using the age of the participant and, if the participant elected a joint and survivor option, the age of the beneficiary on the current retirement date.
(d) Upon election of a subsequent annuity, the credits in the participant's employee account and employer account shall be transferred to the Annuitant Reserve.
