J. MILLARD TAWES, GOVERNOR                            1373

9(7) [Prior service credit for certain elective or appointive of-
ficials.] Credit for previous service.—Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary in this article, every employee of the State or of a par-
ticipating municipal corporation, including any official
elected or
appointed [official] for a fixed term, who is or becomes a member
of the Employees' Retirement System and who at any previous time
since October 1, 1941, was an [elected or appointed official] em-
ployee or official of the State or
of one or more of the counties or
municipal corporations of this State, and whose previous employment
by the State or county or municipal corporation of this State was
not terminated at his own volition, or who was not re-elected or re-
appointed at the expiration of his fixed term of office,
shall receive
in the Employees' Retirement System [prior] service credit for the
time spent [as an elected or appointed official of the county or muni-
cipal corporation] as a member of the Employees9 Retirement Sys-
tem in such previous employment so that he shall again be credited
with all his creditable service as a member of the Employees' Retire-
ment System, including prior service credit to which he was en-
titled during the previous employment.
Upon receiving a claim for
such [prior] service credit [from the official] FROM SUCH EM-
PLOYEE, the board of trustees of the Retirement System shall
verify the fact of such previous employment, the condition of the
termination of such previous employment, and the creditable service
to which the member is entitled
[previous tenure as an elected or
appointed official of the county or municipal corporation], compute
the amount due from such political subdivision for the [prior] service
for which credit is claimed, and submit a statement to the county or
municipal corporation for such amount, such computation to be based
upon the compensation actually received by such [elected or appointed
official] employee from the county or municipal corporation during
the period for which [prior] service is to be credited. The county
or municipal corporation is authorized and directed forthwith to
pay the said amount to the Retirement System, or to place it in the
next ensuing budget for prompt payment when that budget be-
comes effective. The board of trustees is authorized and directed to
include any amount due from the State in the appropriation allowed
by the next ensuing State budget.

Any such employee MEMBER, including an official for a fixed
term, who receives membership service credit for service rendered to
the State or to any county or municipal corporation under the pro-
visions of this sub-section shall pay to the Retirement System by a
single payment,
tions, with interest, which he paid when he was a member of the
Retirement System but withdrew. Provided, however, that any such
member may waive the payment of any or all such contributions
, in
which case upon retirement any
ment allowance, including an ordinary disability reirement allowance,
or any allowance due to non-reappointment or non-reelection to any
office payable to such a member, shall be reduced by the actu-
arial equivalent of those contributions which he had not paid, with
interest to date of retirement.

The total retirement allowance that would have been payable to
the beneficiary had he not waived his contributions shall be used
