Nov. 14, 2014 - NCACC/NCLM Pension Spiking Webinar

NCACC's webinar discussed the recent anti-pension-spiking legislation (H1195) enacted in this year’s session of the General Assembly. The bill’s intent is to discourage inordinate salary “spikes” in the final years of an employee’s career.

As noted in NCACC’s Oct. 24 Capital Watch, the Local Government Employees’ Retirement System Board of Trustees at its October 23 meeting  finalized action on the anti-pension-spiking formula that will be used to evaluate whether a pension spike has occurred, based on recent salary history and eligibility for retirement. Given that action, and the fast approaching Jan. 1, 2015 implementation date of the bill, we believe a focused presentation on the new anti-pension-spiking requirements would be of value to our local government employers.

Sam Watts, policy director with the Retirement Division, walked webinar participants through the legislation, and demonstrated examples of how and when pension-spiking is triggered. Sam also reviewed what communication you may expect from the division, should salary amounts v. pension contributions of a county employee retiring after Jan. 1, 2015 be found to trigger the formula. The division will notify the employee and the employer of the pension-spiking, along with the actuarial liability owed to the pension fund and the repayment process. The Retirement Division will also be providing to local government employers on a monthly basis a listing of those employees whose recent salary history and eligibility for retirement could likely trigger pension spiking should their retirement be imminent.
