(4) for the additional interest credit based on the member's annuity savings account balance as of December 31, 2018, the dividend shall be equal to 75% of the average net rate of return as determined by the board for calendar years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 on the market value of the system's assets that is above 6%, except that such additional interest credit shall not exceed 1.5%; and

(5) for the additional interest credit based on the member's annuity savings account balance as of December 31, 2019, and all calendar years thereafter, the dividend shall be equal to 75% of the five-year average net compound rate of return as determined by the board for that calendar year and the previous four calendar years on the market value of the system's assets that is above 6%.

(c) The member's annuity savings account is vested from the date that the employee becomes a member of the plan.

(d) Interest credits under subsections (a) and (b) shall not be granted on the member's annuity savings account following the end of the second plan year following the member's termination of employment under the plan without vesting in the retirement annuity account as provided in K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 74-49,312, and amendments thereto.
