CA Govt Code § 100006 (2017)  

(a) The board may establish a segregated account within the program fund to be known as the Gain and Loss Reserve Account. The board shall have sole authority over the Gain and Loss Reserve Account, if established. The Gain and Loss Reserve Account may be used to allocate interest at the stated interest rate for program years in which the board determines that the stated interest rate cannot be met from investment earnings.

(b) The board shall establish a goal for the balance of the Gain and Loss Reserve Account and shall periodically review the sufficiency of the reserve account based on the recommendations of the board’s actuary.

(c) The board may allocate excess earnings of the program with respect to assets attributable to the program to the Gain and Loss Reserve Account. In addition, the board may allocate any liability gains and losses to the Gain and Loss Reserve Account. Based on an actuarial valuation following each program year, the board shall determine annually the amount, if any, that is to be allocated to the Gain and Loss Reserve Account for that program year. In determining whether to allocate excess earnings to the Gain and Loss Reserve Account, the board shall consider all of the following:

(1) Whether or not the program has excess earnings.

(2) The sufficiency of the Gain and Loss Reserve Account in light of the goal established pursuant to subdivision (b).

(3) The amount required for the program’s administrative costs.

(4) The amount required for making allocations to individuals’ accounts at the stated interest rate.

(d) In determining whether to allocate liability gains and losses to the Gain and Loss Reserve Account, the board shall consider the matters described in paragraphs (2), (3), and (4) of subdivision (c).
