In January 1988 a provision was enacted that allowed persons who selected Option C and whose Option C beneficiary predeceased them to "pop-up" to Option A. This provision was prospective only and not a local option.
In 1998 a local option was enacted that allowed the "pop-up" for persons who retired prior to January 12, 1988. This local option allows for the "pop-up" for adjustment of any benefit for periods after July 1, 1998, regardless of the date of acceptance of the local option.
