Until the end of the 90-day period beginning on November 17, 1979, the amounts so deducted and withheld from the annual salary of every teacher, and the amounts of additional voluntary deposits, shall be deposited in the Treasury of the United States to the credit of the Teachers’ Retirement and Annuity Fund. As of July 1, 1946, there shall be transferred and credited to such fund the balances of funds held for the retirement of teachers under the provisions of §§ 38-2001.02 and 38-2001.07. The fund thus created shall be held and invested by the Secretary of the Treasury until paid out as hereinafter provided, and the income derived from such investment shall constitute a part of said fund for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this part, and for payment of administrative expenses incurred by the Mayor of the District of Columbia in placing in effect each annuity adjustment granted under § 38-2023.14. Separate accounts shall be maintained by the Treasury with respect to:

(1) The regular operations of the retirement system, exclusive of those incident to the voluntary deposits; and

(2) The voluntary deposits and the supplementary annuities and refunds resulting from such deposits.
