Memorandum
The following amendment to Section 1:562(2) of Chapter 18, Employees Retirement System of the City Code is an IRS requested technical qualification amendment, the adoption of which is required as a condition of the favorable IRS tax qualification ruling letter dated June 20, 2012 being effective.

In 2011, City Council repealed and replaced in its entirety Chapter 18, Employees Retirement System, of the City Code in part to address changes required by federal tax laws to meet tax qualification requirements of the Internal Revenue Code. This technical amendment completes that process.

Approval is recommended.
