(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 10-104.2)
Validation of service credits.
An active member of
the General Assembly having no service credits or creditable service in
the Fund, may establish service credit and creditable service for
periods during which he was an employee of an employer in an elective
office and could have elected to participate in the Fund but did not so
elect. Service credits and creditable service may be established by
payment to the Fund of an amount equal to the contributions he would
have made if he had elected to
participate plus interest to the date of
payment, together with a like amount as the applicable municipality
credits including interest, but the total period of such creditable
service that may be validated shall not exceed 8 years.
