    (a) A participant who was an employee on July 7, 1997 and retires on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly may elect in writing at the time of retirement to have the retirement annuity calculated in accordance with the provisions of Sections 15-135 and 15-136 as they existed immediately prior to amendment by Public Act 90-65. This election, once made, is irrevocable.
