    Sec. 21-115. Special fund abolished; designation of remittance agents.
    (a) The Social Security Contribution Fund is abolished at the close of business on June 30, 1997. Any balance then remaining in that Fund shall be transferred to the Social Security Administration Fund created under Section 21-109.1, and any amounts thereafter designated for deposit into the Social Security Contribution Fund shall instead be deposited into the Social Security Administration Fund.
    (b) The State Agency is authorized to designate any retirement system which has adopted coverage under this Article to act as remittance agent on behalf of the State Agency and to make payment of the Social Security contributions collected upon the wages of employees within the retirement system coverage group directly to the designated Federal Reserve Bank. Any retirement system so designated as a remittance agent shall continue to be subject to the regulations of the State Agency with respect to coverage determinations, wage reporting, corrective adjustments, and accountability for tax collections in the same manner as any other covered entity.
