(b)Upon the adoption of any resolution to withdraw its members, all accumulated contributions held in the association shall be refunded to the district’s employees upon the effective date of their withdrawal and in the same manner as the accumulated contributions would be refunded upon the termination of their employment by the district.

A refund, distribution, or transfer of contributions or other funds shall not be made to any employee or any district unless that action complies with the requirements of Section 401(a) of Title 26 of the United States Code. (e)In the event of the transfer of district contributions to another public retirement system, the employee contributions shall also be transferred to the other public retirement system.


The effective date of withdrawal of any resolution adopted pursuant to this section shall be at the end of the calendar month during which such resolution is adopted.
