Effect of participation.
Each participating judge, by virtue
of the payment of the employee contributions required to be paid to this
system, has a vested interest in the refunds provided
under this Article and, in consideration of that interest, authorizes
the deductions from salary
of all contributions payable to this system under this Article.
Payment of salary as prescribed by law or as contracted by an
employer, less the amounts of contributions provided in this Article,
shall, together with such special vested rights in the refunds, be a
full and complete discharge of all claims of
payments for service rendered by a judge during the period covered by any such payment.
