(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 8-228)
Transfers within service.
Whenever an employee is transferred
or assigned from one position in
the service of the employer to another position in such service, he
shall not be involuntarily removed from membership in this fund, but may
continue to participate as a contributor until because of such other
position he becomes a participant in another public pension fund for the
benefit of employees of the employer.
Any employee who withdraws from a position in the service which he
holds because of employment in the classified civil service or career service other than
by temporary or provisional appointment, and who then accepts a position in the service
which would normally require his election for participation and
membership, shall be continued as a participant and member in the fund
while employed by virtue of a temporary or provisional appointment, unless
he elects to sever his membership
by making application for refund within a period of 90 days from the
date of such employment in such other position, and is otherwise
eligible for refund.
