SECTION 133
Agreement with federal secretary
Retirement & Social Security (RSS) CHAPTER 51-A, ARTICLE 3
§ 133. Agreement with federal secretary. 1. The director is hereby
authorized, on behalf of the state, to enter into an agreement with the
federal secretary for the purpose of extending old-age and survivors
insurance coverage to eligible employees of the state or of any
political subdivision.

2. The agreement with the federal secretary shall provide that the
state will pay to the secretary of the treasury of the United States, at
such time or times as may be prescribed under the federal social
security act, contributions with respect to wages, equal to the sum of
the taxes which would be imposed by sections thirty-one hundred one and
thirty-one hundred eleven of the federal insurance contributions act if
the services covered by such agreement constituted employment within the
meaning of that act. Such agreement also may contain such provisions
relating to coverage, benefits, contributions, adjustments, refunds,
administration, effective date, modification and termination of the
agreement and such other appropriate provisions as the director and the
federal secretary may agree upon and which are consistent with this
article and the federal social security act. Such agreement, or any
modification thereof, may be made retroactive where authorized by the
federal social security act.

3. Such agreement shall apply to:

a. All services which constitute employment and are performed in the
employ of the state by employees thereof, provided, however, that the
director may exclude from coverage under such agreement, or modification
thereof, in accordance with the federal social security act, classes of
employment where he shall determine that old-age and survivors insurance
coverage for such classes is impracticable; and

b. All services which constitute employment and are performed in the
employ of a political subdivision, whether or not covered by an
agreement entered into pursuant to section one hundred thirty-six of
this chapter, provided, however, that the director may exclude from
coverage under such agreement, or modification thereof, in accordance
with the federal social security act, classes of employment where he
shall determine that old-age and survivors insurance coverage for such
classes is impracticable.

4. Any instrumentality jointly created by this state and any other
state or states is hereby authorized, upon the granting of like
authority by such other state or states, (a) to enter into an agreement
with the federal secretary to provide old-age and survivors insurance
benefits to employees of such instrumentality, (b) to require its
employees to pay (and for that purpose to deduct from their wages)
contributions equal to the tax which would be imposed by section
thirty-one hundred one of the federal insurance contributions act, (c)
to make payments to the secretary of the treasury in accordance with
such agreement, including payments from its own funds equal to the
amount of the tax which would be imposed by section thirty-one hundred
eleven of the federal insurance contributions act, and (d) otherwise to
comply with such agreements.
