(2) A member of the system may dispute the accuracy of the information used by the system in making the computation only by filing a written notice of dispute with the system not later than whichever of the following days occurs last:

(a) The 240th day after the date on which the computation and information summary is provided to the member pursuant to subsection (1) of this section.

(b) The 240th day after the date on which the retirement allowance or benefit to which the member is entitled first becomes payable.

(3) The filing of a notice of dispute under subsection (2) of this section extends the time allowed for election of an optional form of retirement allowance or benefit until the 30th day after the conclusion of the proceeding and any judicial review thereof if the proceeding or review results in a change in the computation of the retirement allowance or benefit.

(4) Upon receiving a notice of dispute under subsection (2) of this section, the system shall determine the accuracy of the disputed information and make a written decision either affirming the accuracy of the information and computation based thereon or changing the computation using corrected information. The system shall provide to the member a copy of the decision and a written explanation of any applicable statutes and rules. The member is entitled to judicial review of the decision as provided in ORS 183.484 (Jurisdiction for review of orders other than contested cases) and rules of the board consistent with applicable statutes.
