The information contained in this pamphlet is valid as of August 1, 2010 and is meant to be a summarization of the most important Louisiana Revised Statutes related to the Clerks’ of Court Retirement and Relief Fund effective on that date.  Other sections of the state’s revised statutes and/or federal codes and regulations may affect members’ retirement benefits.  All of this information is subject to legislative amendment and revision and/or changes that may be adopted and implemented by the fund’s Board of Trustees without notice.

THIS SUMMARY PRESENTATION OF PLAN PROVISIONS IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IN NO WAY CONSTITUTES A CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND THE RETIREMENT FUND.  THIS IS NOT A LEGAL DOCUMENT AND IT IS NOT INTENDED TO SERVE AS A BASIS FOR LEGAL INTERPRETATION. THE LOUISIANA REVISED STATUTES AND CONSTITUTION, RELEVANT FEDERAL REGULATIONS AND LAWS, AND THE OFFICIAL BOARD POLICIES SHALL SERVE TO GUIDE DECISIONS RELATED TO MEMBERS AND EMPLOYERS PARTICIPATING IN THE CLERKS’ OF COURT RETIREMENT AND RELIEF FUND.

Official legal references for the Clerks’ of Court Retirement and Relief Fund are found in the Louisiana Revised Statutes 11:1501 through 1578. The Fund is also governed by many of the General Revised Statutes found in R.S. 11:1 through 323.  The retirement fund and its members and employers are covered by other sections of state law and by federal laws and regulations.  This booklet is not a full restatement of all applicable laws or regulations.  Instead, it is meant to provide convenient access to many of the statutory provisions of law.  It is a tool meant to assist members and employers in making decisions related to matters of retirement planning.  For questions related to specific cases and for information on matters not covered in this booklet, please contact the retirement system office.  Members should not rely solely on this booklet to estimate their benefit or make final decisions related to eligibility for benefits.

This pamphlet provides a restatement of the Louisiana Revised Statutes under which the retirement fund operates.  There may be specific statutes, rules, policies, or regulations which, when and where applicable, could cause results different from the rules stated herein, based on individual and/or unique factual situations.  Sections or subsections of the revised statutes which in general do not pertain to the Clerks’ of Court Retirement and Relief Fund are indicated by the use of the statement, “Not applicable to Clerks’ of Court Retirement and Relief Fund”.  Although every attempt was made to avoid any typographical or formatting errors, if errors are found they will be addressed in future printings.

As a qualified public pension plan, the Clerks’ of Court Retirement and Relief Fund is subject to certain IRS codes and regulations.  This handbook does not include such codes and regulations.

Any questions you may have regarding your rights in the fund and any other matter involving the fund should be directed to the fund’s office, preferably in writing.  Please provide your social security number and the name of your employing Clerk’s office in all correspondence.
