CHAPTER 66* STATE EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT ACT
Sec. 5-177a. Credit for university employees with prior service as hospital pharmacist.

Sec. 5-177a. Credit for university employees with prior service as hospital pharmacist. (348)(Text)

Any person in the unclassified service employed full time by The University of Connecticut, who served prior to his employment by the state in a teaching or administrative position as a hospital pharmacist in a teaching and research hospital affiliated with an educational institution in another state, for which service he has received, or will receive, no retirement benefit or pension, may, subject to the following condition, gain credit for such prior service, not to exceed ten years in the aggregate, on paying to the State Employees Retirement Fund, for each year of such prior service, six per cent of his annual rate of compensation when he first became a full-time employee of this state. Such payment shall be made before July 1, 1966, or within one year of his first full-time employment with the state, whichever is later. When a person who has gained credit for such prior service retires, not more than one year of such out-of-state service may be counted for each two years of state service, provided, if such person has purchased more of such out-of-state service than can be counted, refund of the amount paid on the extra years of service shall be made. (349)

Sec. 5-178. Probation officers. (350)(Text)

Any municipal employee who has been taken into state service under the provisions of section N231 of the November, 1955, supplement to the general statutes shall be credited with his entire period of service as a municipal employee for retirement purposes; provided he has made retirement contributions for each year of his municipal service, based upon his salary for such year, equal to those he would have made had he been a member during such period. (351)

Sec. 5-179. Services paid for by federal grant. (352)(Text)

The time during which any state employee performed services, the direction of which remained in the state agency to which such employee was attached although his compensation was paid directly by federal grant, shall be considered a part of his state service for retirement purposes, provided his retirement contributions have been continuous since September 1, 1939, or, if not continuous, have been made with interest thereon at the rate of five per cent per year. (353)

Sec. 5-180. Military service. (354)(Text)

(a) The war service before September 1, 1939, of a veteran, as defined in section 27-103 and subdivision (29) of section 5-196, shall be counted as state service if the member began to make his retirement contributions before September 1, 1941, and made retirement contributions on all salary received by him from September 1, 1939, until his retirement date. (355)

(b) The war service before September 1, 1939, of a veteran who became a member after September 1, 1939, and the war service or military service during a national emergency declared by the President of the United States on and after September 1, 1939, of a veteran who became a member at any time, shall be counted as state service if the member makes retirement contributions for each month of war service as defined by section 27-103 and subdivision (29) of section 5-196 or for each month of such service during a national emergency, as the case may be. Any veteran who becomes a member on or after July 1, 1975, shall not receive credit for such war or military service if such member has received or is entitled to receive any retirement allowance for the same years of such service from the federal government. Any veteran who is a member and who has not made application for such credit prior to July 1, 1975, shall not receive credit for such service if such member has received or is entitled to receive any retirement allowance for the same years of such service from the federal government unless such member makes application for such credit to the Retirement Commission on or before October 1, 1975, and makes retirement contributions for each month of such service in accordance with the provisions of this subsection. The Comptroller of the state may notify each employee of this provision on or before September 1, 1975. Such contributions shall equal one-twelfth of four per cent of his first year's salary as a state employee multiplied by the total number of months of such war service or national emergency service and, if such employee became a member after April 1, 1958, shall be accompanied by interest at four per cent per year from the time such war service was rendered or from September 1, 1939, whichever is later, until the date of payment or January 1, 1962, whichever is earlier. Such contributions may be paid by payroll deductions as determined by the Retirement Commission over a period not to exceed thirty-six months, interest thereon to be paid not later than the last day of the month following the payment of the last of such deductions. Service credit for retirement purposes shall not be granted unless payment of contributions and interest is completed. No credit shall be given hereunder for military service during a national emergency to any state employee who has served less than ten years as a permanent full-time state employee, nor for any such military service beyond a total period of his compulsory service, if any, plus three years. (356)

(c) A member who leaves state service for the sole purpose of entering the armed forces of the United States may make his retirement contributions while in the armed forces in the monthly amount he was making immediately before he left state service. Such contributions shall be deducted from any salary payable to the member during his absence. Alternately, if no salary was payable to him, he may make such contributions after his return to state service, with interest thereon at five per cent per year from a date six months after he left the armed forces, provided he shall make application for return to state service within ninety days after he has received a certificate for satisfactory service from the armed forces. No contributions may be made, however, at any time for service in the armed forces beyond a total period of his compulsory service therein, if any, plus three years. (357)
