For purposes of this paragraph and subdivision (5) of this subsection, distributions shall be considered to begin on the member's required beginning date, or if subparagraph d. of this paragraph applies, the date distributions are required to begin to the surviving spouse under subparagraph a. of this paragraph.  If annuity payments irrevocably commence to the member before the member's required beginning date, or to the member's surviving spouse before the date of distributions are required to begin to the surviving spouse under subparagraph a. of this paragraph, the date of distributions shall be considered to begin the date distributions actually commence.

  (c)  Unless the member's interest is distributed in the form of an annuity purchased from an insurance company or in a single sum on or before the required beginning date, as of the first distribution calendar year distributions shall be made in accordance with subdivisions (3), (4), and (5) of this subsection.  If the member's interest is distributed in the form of an annuity purchased from an insurance company, distributions shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the United States Treasury regulations.

  (3)  (a)  If the member's interest is paid in the form of annuity distributions under sections 86.200 to 86.366, payments under the annuity shall satisfy the following requirements:

  a.  The annuity distributions shall be paid in periodic payments made at intervals not longer than one year;

  b.  The distribution period shall be over a life or lives, or over a period certain not longer than the period described in subdivision (4) or (5) of this subsection;

  c.  Once payments have begun over a period certain, the period certain shall not be changed even if the period certain is shorter than the maximum permitted;

  d.  Payments shall either be nonincreasing or increase only as permitted under Q&A-14 of Section 1.401 (a)(9)-6 of the United States Treasury regulations.

  (b)  The amount distributed on or before the member's required beginning date, or if the member dies before distribution begins, the date distributions are required to begin under subparagraph a. or b. of paragraph (b) of subdivision (2) of this subsection, shall be the payment that is required for one payment interval.  The second payment need not be made until the end of the next payment interval even if the payment interval ends in the next calendar year.  "Payment intervals" means the periods for which payments are received, such as bimonthly, monthly, semiannually, or annually.  All of the member's benefit accruals as of the last day of the first distribution calendar year shall be included in the calculation of the amount of the annuity payments for payment intervals ending on or after the member's required beginning date.

  (c)  Any additional benefits accruing to the member in a calendar year after the first distribution calendar year shall be distributed beginning with the first payment interval ending in the calendar year immediately following the calendar year in which such amount accrues.

  (4)  (a)  If the member's interest is being distributed in the form of a joint and survivor annuity for the joint lives of the member and a nonspouse beneficiary, annuity payments to be made on or after the member's required beginning date to the designated beneficiary after the member's death shall not at any time exceed the applicable percentage of the annuity payment for such period that would have been payable to the member using the table set forth in Q&A-2 of Section 1.401 (a)(9)-6T of the United States Treasury regulations.

  (b)  The period certain for an annuity distribution commencing during the member's lifetime shall not exceed the applicable distribution period for the member under the Uniform Lifetime Table set forth in Section 1.401 (a)(9)-9 of the United States Treasury regulations for the calendar year that contains the annuity starting date.  If the annuity starting date precedes the year in which the member reaches age seventy, the applicable distribution period for the member shall be the distribution period for age seventy under the Uniform Lifetime Table set forth in Section 1.401 (a)(9)-9 of the United States Treasury regulations plus the excess of seventy over the age of the member as of the member's birthday in the year that contained the annuity starting date.

  (5)  (a)  If the member dies before the date distribution of his or her interest begins and there is a designated beneficiary, the member's entire interest shall be distributed, beginning no later than the time described in subparagraph a. or b. of paragraph (b) of subdivision (2) of this subsection, over the life of the designated beneficiary or over a period certain not exceeding:

  a.  Unless the annuity starting date is before the first distribution calendar year, the life expectancy of the designated beneficiary determined using the beneficiary's age as of the beneficiary's birthday in the calendar year immediately following the calendar year of the member's death; or

  b.  If the annuity starting date is before the first distribution calendar year, the life expectancy of the designated beneficiary determined using the beneficiary's age as of the beneficiary's birthday in the calendar year that contains the annuity starting date.

  (b)  If the member dies before the date distributions begin and there is no designated beneficiary as of September thirtieth of the calendar year following the calendar year of the member's death, distribution of the member's entire interest shall be completed by December thirty-first of the calendar year containing the fifth anniversary of the member's death.

  (c)  If the member dies before the date distribution of his or her interest begins, the member's surviving spouse is the member's sole designated beneficiary, and the surviving spouse dies before distributions to the surviving spouse begin, this subdivision shall apply as if the surviving spouse were the member; except that, the time by which distributions shall begin shall be determined without regard to subparagraph a. of paragraph (b) of subdivision (2) of this subsection.

  (6)  As used in this subsection, the following terms mean:

  (a)  "Designated beneficiary", the surviving spouse or the individual who is designated as the beneficiary under subdivision (4) of section 86.200 or any individual who is entitled to receive death benefits under section 86.283 or 86.287 and is the designated beneficiary under Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and Section 1.401 (a)(9)-1, Q&A-4 of the United States Treasury regulations;

  (b)  "Distribution calendar year", a calendar year for which a minimum distribution is required.  For distributions beginning before the member's death, the first distribution calendar year is the calendar year immediately preceding the calendar year which contains the member's required beginning date.  For distributions beginning after the member's death, the first distribution calendar year is the calendar year in which distributions are required to begin under paragraph (b) of subdivision (2) of this subsection;

  (c)  "Life expectancy", life expectancy as computed by use of the Single Life Table in Section 1.401 (a)(9)-9 of the United States Treasury regulations;

  (d)  "Required beginning date", April first of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the member attains age seventy and one-half years or, if later, in which the member terminates employment as a police officer and actually retires.

  (7)  Notwithstanding any provision in this subsection to the contrary:

  (a)  A distribution for calendar years 2003, 2004, and 2005 shall not fail to satisfy Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, merely because the payments do not satisfy Section 1.401 (a)(9)-1, Q&A-1 to Q&A-16 of the United States Treasury regulations, provided the payments satisfy Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; and

  (b)  Under Section 1.401 (a)(9)-1, Q&A-2(d) of the United States Treasury regulations, the plan shall be treated as having complied with Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, for all years to which Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, applies to the plan if the plan complies with a reasonable and good faith interpretation of Section 401(a)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
