146.35. A pension plan may only be amended as described in paragraph 2 of section 146.34 if, at the end of the consultation process set out in this section, less than 30% of the members and beneficiaries are opposed to it.
The pension committee must send every member and beneficiary of the pension plan a written notice, separate from the notice required under section 146.33, that states, in addition to the information required under subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 26, the consultation process required in the absence of a pension plan provision allowing the reduction of benefits when contributions are insufficient. The notice must also inform them that they may notify the pension committee of their opposition to the proposed amendment within 60 days after the notice is sent or after the notice required under the third paragraph is published, whichever is later.
Unless all members and beneficiaries of the pension plan have been personally notified, the pension committee must publish a notice containing the information required under the second paragraph. The rules set out in the third paragraph of section 146.3.1 apply with the necessary modifications.
