38-911. Deferred annuity; eligibility; amount

If any member who has at least ten years of credited service terminates employment for reasons other than retirement or disability, the person may elect to receive a deferred annuity, except that if the person withdraws the person's accumulated contributions from the plan, all rights to a deferred annuity are forfeited. A deferred annuity is a lifetime monthly payment that is actuarially equivalent to the annuitant's accumulated contributions in the plan plus an equal amount paid by the employer and commences on application on or after the sixty-second birthday of the annuitant. The deferred annuity is not a retirement benefit and annuitants are not entitled to receive any amount prescribed by section 38-887, 38-888, 38-904, 38-905 or 38-906.
