Any buyback/make-up to be made under §§ 4(1)(g½), 4(1)(l), 4(1)(l½), 4(1)(l¾), 4(1)(n), 4(1)(n½), 4(1)(p), 4(1)(r), 4(1)(s) or 4(2)(c) will be calculated exclusively with buyback interest.

Any buyback/make-up to be made under §§ 3(3), 3(4), 3(4A), 3(5), 3(6)(c), 3(6)(d) or 3(8)(b) is subject to the provisions of Section 9 of Chapter 176 of the Acts of 2011 and as such could be calculated under either buyback interest or actuarial interest.  Boards should refer to PERAC Memo #23/2012 for an explanation on when to use each rate.
