PUBLIC LAW 102-231—DEC. 12, 1991 105 STAT. 1729 Community Utility Authority is entitled, if the employee and the respective authority so elect, to the following: (1) To retain coverage, rights, and benefits under subchapter I of chapter 81 (relating to compensation for work injuries) of title 5, United States Code, and for this purpose employment with the tribal authority shall be deemed employment by the United States. However, if an injured employee, or his dependents in case of his death, receives from the tribal authority any pay- ment (including an allowance, gratuity, payment under an insurance policy for which the premium is wholly paid by the tribal authority, or other benefit of any kind) on account of the same injury or death, the amount of that payment shall be credited against any benefit payable under subchapter I of chapter 81 of title 5, United States Code, as follows: (A) Payments on account of injury or disability shall be credited against disability compensation payable to the injured employee. (B) Payments on account of death shall be credited against death compensation payable to dependents of the deceased employee. (2) To retain coverage, rights, and benefits under chapter 83 (relating to retirement) or chapter 84 (relating to Federal employees' retirement system) of title 5, United States Code, if necessary employee deductions and agency contributions in payment for coverage, rights, and benefits for the period of employment with the tribal authority are currently deposited in the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund (pursuant to chapter 88 or chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code) and, if appropriate, the Thrift Savings Fund (pursuant to section 8432 of title 5, United States Code), and the period during which coverage, rights, and benefits are retained under this paragraph is deemed creditable service under section 8332 or 8411 of title 5, United States Code. Days of unused sick leave to the credit of an employee under a formal leave system at the time the employee leaves Federal employment to be employed by a tribal authority remain to his credit for retirement purposes during covered service with the tribal authority. (3) To retain coverage, rights, and benefits under chapter 89 (relating to health insurance) of title 5, United States Code, if necessary employee deductions and agency contributions in payment for the coverage, rights, and benefits for the period of employment with the tribal authority are currently deposited in the Employee's Health Benefit Fund (pursuant to section 8909 of title 5, United States Code), and the period during which coverage, rights, and benefits are retained under this paragraph is deemed service as an employee under chapter 89 of title 5, United States Code. (4) To retain coverage, rights, and benefits under chapter 87 (relating to life insurance) of title 5, United States Code, if necessary employee deductions and agency contributions in payment for the coverage, rights, and benefits for the period of employment with the tribal authority are currently deposited in the Employee's Life Insurance Fund (pursuant to section 8714 of title 5, United States Code), and the period during which coverage, rights, and benefits are retained under this paragraph is deemed service as an employee under chapter 87 of title 5, United State Code.
