(1) An inactive member of the individual account program may elect to receive a distribution of the amounts in the memberís employee account, rollover account and employer account to the extent the member is vested in those accounts under ORS 238A.320 if the inactive member has separated from all service with participating public employers and with employers who are treated as part of a participating public employerís controlled group under the federal laws and rules governing the status of the system and the fund as a qualified governmental retirement plan and trust.

(2) If an inactive member of the individual account program who is not vested in the employer account receives a distribution under subsection (1) of this section, the employer account of the member is permanently forfeited as of the date of the distribution.

(3) A member may not make an election under this section for less than all of the memberís individual accounts described in ORS 238A.350 in which the member is vested.

(4) A member who is vested in the pension program established under this chapter and who is eligible to withdraw from the pension program under ORS 238A.120 may make an election under this section only if the member also withdraws from the pension program. A member who has a member account established under ORS chapter 238 may make an election under this section only if the member also withdraws that member account in the manner provided by ORS 238.265. A member who has an account established under ORS 238.440 may make an election under this section only if the member also withdraws the account established under ORS 238.440.
