§ A8.521


Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Charter, any member who was serving in the Armed Forces of the United States or the State of California during the time of war or any emergency lawfully declared by the President of the United States, who had standing on an eligible list for appointment to a permanent position and was reached for certification to a permanent position while so serving, shall have the right to elect to make contributions as provided in this section and to receive credit in this system as City service for all or any part of the time after he was so reached during which he was so serving; provided, however, that no member shall have such right unless he entered into employment with the City and County as a result of such certification made in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.361 of the Charter within one year after his discharge from such armed forces.

Any member who elects, pursuant to this section, to make contributions and receive credit for such time, shall contribute to the Retirement System an amount determined by applying the rate of contribution first applicable to him on the effective date of his membership in the Retirement System to the monthly compensation earnable by him on said date, together with interest on said amount at the rates of interest being used from time to time under the Retirement System.

The Board of Supervisors shall provide by ordinance the time and manner for making said contributions and for the crediting of such service as service credit.
