Current Bill Summary

SB 154 - Currently, a member of the Missouri Local Government Employees' Retirement System (LAGERS) may choose to receive a partial lump-sum payment of some of their retirement benefits. If the LAGERS member chooses the partial lump-sum payment their monthly benefit is reduced. The amount the person's monthly benefit is reduced varies based on the age of the person at retirement. This act prohibits a person who retires before sixty and chooses the partial-lump sum payment from receiving a monthly benefit of more than ninety percent of the amount of their unreduced monthly benefit.

This act is similar to HB 263 (2011).
