Limits initial transfers into the fund to 20% of the balance in a fund member's or state employee's account. Limits annual contributions to the fund to 20% of a member's or an employee's total contributions for that year. Provides that, if a member or employee contributes not less than the amount the member or employee initially designated to the fund for at least 36 consecutive months and maintains in the fund the amounts transferred and contributed during that period, the state shall contribute on the member's or employee's behalf to the fund as a match 10% of the total amount contributed by the member or employee or on the member's or employee's behalf to the fund during that 36 month period. Provides that for each additional 12 consecutive months that a member or an employee contributes not less than the member or employee initially designated to the fund and maintains in the fund the amounts transferred and contributed that period, the state shall contribute on the member's or employee's behalf to the fund as a match 10% of the total amount contributed by the member or employee or on the member's or employee's behalf to the fund during that 12 month period.

Provides that death benefits paid to beneficiaries of members of the following funds who die in the line of duty are to be paid from the special death benefit fund instead of the pension relief fund: (1) The 1925 police pension fund.

Allows a member of PERF or TRF, or both, to do the following with the money credited to the member in a PERF or TRF annuity savings account, in any combination: (1) Retain and continue to invest all or part of the money in the annuity savings account. (2) Receive one or more distributions of all or part of the money in the annuity savings account. (3) Obtain an annuity with all or part of the money in the annuity savings account. Provides that if survivor benefits under PERF or TRF are forfeited for the failure of a survivor to claim the benefits within three years of the death of a member, the money to pay the benefits must be credited in the manner provided by the board of trustees of the Indiana public retirement system, rather than to PERF or TRF specifically. Provides that the minimum pension benefit for a regularly retired member of TRF who receives an unreduced pension benefit is $185 per month. Makes an appropriation.
