Chapter 31, P.L. 2010

Date Approved: June 30, 2010

Effective Date: July 1, 2010

Description:

This law establishes a limit on employer contributions to the Alternate Benefit Program (ABP) by providing that there will be no contributions based on any portion of salary that is in excess of the statutory maximum salary of State cabinet officers.

The ABP is a defined contribution pension system whose members are employees of New Jersey public institutions of higher education. Currently, the State contributes 8% of the ABP member’s base salary and the member contributes 5%. The bill provides that the State will contribute at a rate equal to 8% of the member's base salary except the amount of the contribution may not exceed 8% of the maximum salary for department officers as established by law. N.J.S.A. 52:14-15.107 sets the maximum annual salary of department officers at $141,000 for calendar year 2002 and thereafter.

The law takes effect July 1, 2010.
