      Section: 43:10-5.6: Election for adjustment of pension benefits

           2. a. A county that is paying pension benefits to retirants or their surviving beneficiaries pursuant to the provisions of article 1 of chapter 10 of Title 43 of the Revised Statutes may elect to make adjustments in accordance with the provisions of this act in the amount of the pension benefits paid in order to reflect increases in the cost of living and to maintain the purchasing power of the pension benefits by the adoption, and submission to the pension commission, of an appropriate resolution by its board of chosen freeholders.

b. A pension adjustment shall not be made for any retirant or beneficiary who is not receiving the regular, full, monthly pension. The adjustment made shall be effective only on the first day of a month, shall be paid in monthly installments, and shall not be decreased, increased, revoked or repealed except as otherwise provided in this act. No adjustment shall be due to a retirant or beneficiary unless it constitutes a payment for an entire month.

c. In the case of any retirant or beneficiary first becoming eligible to receive an adjustment under the provisions of this act, such adjustment shall be paid beginning in the 25th month in which the retirant or beneficiary is entitled to receive the pension benefit.
