§ 402. Eligibility for Participation.
Any boxer who fights in a commission-approved contest shall be required to have contributions made to the Plan and shall participate in allocations of contributions and forfeitures in the Plan beginning with the first fight in which such requirements are met. The boxer shall sign a waiver of privacy rights to the extent necessary to enable the commission to locate the boxer in order to assure the boxer's receipt of benefits under the Plan. Any boxer who was participating in the Plan prior to May 1, 1996 shall continue to participate in the Plan and share in allocations to the boxer's accounts under the terms of this article.
(a) Effect Of Break In Service On Current Participation.
Any boxer who incurs a break in service prior to becoming a covered boxer shall cease to be a participating boxer in the Plan. If the participating boxer is a covered boxer pursuant to this Plan at the time he or she incurs a break in service, then such participating boxer's regular accounts shall be placed on inactive status, and the participating boxer shall not continue to share in the allocation of contributions but shall continue to receive allocations of the Plan's forfeitures and investment results.
(b) Determination of Eligibility.
The commission shall determine the eligibility of each boxer for participation in the Plan based upon information gathered for the commission by the commission staff. Each such determination shall be conclusive and binding on all persons. Any misrepresentation by a boxer, manager, promoter, or beneficiary shall be grounds for the denial, suspension or discontinuance of benefits, in whole or in part, or for the cancellation or recovery of benefit payments made in reliance thereon by the commission. Each participating boxer shall participate in the Plan until such time as the boxer incurs a break in service or begins receiving all or a portion of his or her accrued benefit from the Plan.
