(a) The general rule that Federal Benefit
Payments are calculated under the applicable
retirement plan as though the employee were
eligible for optional retirement and separated on
June 30, 1997, does not apply to disability
benefits prior to optional retirement age.
(b) In cases involving disability benefits
prior to optional retirement age, no Federal
Benefit Payment is payable until the retiree
reaches the age of eligibility to receive a
deferred annuity (age 55 under the Police and
Firefighters Plan and age 62 under the Teachers
Plan). When the age for deferred annuity is
reached, the Federal Benefit Payment is paid using
creditable service accrued as of June 30, 1997,
and average salary (computed under the rules for
the applicable plan) as of the date of separation.
