146.8. The amount of surplus assets that may be used over the course of a fiscal year must first be appropriated to the payment of the employer and member current service contributions, up to the lesser of the amount of the employer or member contributions recorded, respectively, under the first and second paragraphs of section 42.2 and the amount of the employer or member current service contributions.
If the amount of surplus assets that may be used is less than the total amount of employer and member contributions recorded under section 42.2, the appropriation under the first paragraph must be proportional to the contributions recorded, respectively, under the first and second paragraphs of that section.
If there is a balance of surplus assets, up to 20% of the balance may, per fiscal year of the plan and in accordance with its provisions, be appropriated to the payment of the value of the additional obligations arising from an amendment to the plan or to the payment of member contributions or be transferred to the employer.
Any amount appropriated to the payment of the employer current service contributions or to the payment of the value of the additional obligations arising from an amendment or transferred to the employer must be deducted from the amounts recorded under section 42.2. The same applies to any amount appropriated to the payment of member current service contributions.
