Chapter 86

< > Effective - 28 Aug 1939    bottom

  86.020.  Service creditable. — 1.  Under such rules and regulations as the board of trustees shall adopt, each member who was a policeman on and prior to the date the retirement system becomes operative and who becomes a member within one year from such date, shall file a detailed statement of all service as a policeman rendered by him prior to that date, for which he claims credit.

  2.  The board of trustees shall fix and determine by proper rules and regulations how much service in any year is equivalent to one year of service, but in no case shall more than one year of service be creditable for all service in one calendar year, nor shall the board of trustees allow credit as service for any period of more than one month's duration during which the member was absent without pay.

  3.  Subject to the above restrictions and to such other rules and regulations as the board of trustees may adopt, the board of trustees shall verify the service claims as soon as practicable after the filing of such statement of service.

  4.  Upon verification of the statements of service the board of trustees shall issue prior service certificates, certifying to each member the length of prior service with which he is credited on the basis of his statement of service.  So long as the holder of such a certificate continues to be a member, a prior service certificate shall be final and conclusive for retirement purposes as to such service; provided, however, that any member may, within one year from the date of issuance or modification of such certificate, request the board of trustees to modify or correct his prior service certificate.  When any policeman ceases to be a member his prior service certificate shall become void.  Should he again become a member, he shall enter the retirement system as a member not entitled to prior service credit except as provided in section 86.087.

  5.  Creditable service at retirement on which the retirement allowance of a member shall be based shall consist of the membership service rendered by him since he last became a member and also, if he has a prior service certificate which is in full force and effect, the amount of the service certified on his prior service certificate.
