House committee substitute amends the 2nd edition as follows.
Makes the following identical changes to the proposed changes to GS 128-27(m2)(1), concerning the Local Governmental Employees' Retirement System, and GS 135-5(m2)(1), concerning the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System, regarding payment of a member's special retirement allowance guaranteed by the respective Board of Trustees for a number of months to the member's designated beneficiary. Now provides that if the member's designated beneficiary (must be designated under Option 2, 3, or 6 set forth in subsection (g) of each statute, as required by existing law) begins receiving monthly payments and dies before the specified number of monthly payments have been made in combination to the member and the beneficiary, a one-time payment will be paid to the member's legal representatives, rather than estate, as previously specified.
