RULE §610.32Revised Funding Soundness Restoration Plan Exemption

(a) A public retirement system is adhering to a funding soundness restoration plan formulated between September 1, 2021, and September 1, 2025, if, during the period between the date the funding soundness restoration plan is adopted by the system and governmental entity and the 10th anniversary of the applicable date for the funding soundness restoration plan to be formulated and the system to be within the maximum funding period prescribed by Texas Government Code §§802.2015(e)(2) or 802.2016(e)(2), the system's actuarial valuation shows the system's funding period or funded ratio remain within the applicable compliance corridors established in this section. If the system's funding period is infinite, only the funded ratio will be evaluated to determine compliance for the purposes of this subsection.

(b) The baseline for a system's funding period compliance corridor will be 30 years, and the baseline for the funded ratio corridor will be the actuarial projection of the system's expected future actuarial value of assets and liabilities submitted as part of an actuarial valuation or separate analysis in accordance with either Texas Government Code §§802.2015(e-2)(1) or 802.2016(e-2)(1).

(c) The allowable degree of variation from the baseline will begin at five percent for a funded ratio corridor or ten years for a funding period corridor and will decrease over the 10-year period as described by Figure: 40 TAC §610.32(c). A system would be considered compliant if plan experience exceeds the corridor in a favorable way. The board will use each system's baseline to provide a compliance corridor unique to that system based on their amortization period and funded ratio, using the corridor sizes specified in these rules.

(d) A system may submit a voluntary funding soundness restoration plan without first becoming subject to the requirement, for the purposes of qualifying for the revision exemption, provided the V-FSRP is consistent with all applicable submission requirements in statute and rules.
