WHEREAS, amendments to Article 7 of the Illinois Pension Code, effective December 31, 1967, must be implemented, and

WHEREAS, it is desirable that the Board of Trustees adopt rules and regulations for the direction of the Executive Director and staff;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Trustees that the following rules and regulations shall be adopted (all references are to sections of the Illinois Pension Code):

Creditable service shall be granted upon certification by a municipality or participating instrumentality that the governing body has elected to allow creditable service to employees who leave employment to service in the Armed Forces of the United States and return to active employment and participation in the Fund. Creditable service shall be granted only if the employee returns to active employment (full-time, regular service) within 90 days after the date he is discharged from service, and upon certification by the employee that no period for which creditable service is granted will be used in the computation of a pension for service in any branch of the Armed Forces of the United States. Credits shall be established only if necessary to compute a benefit. Prior to the grant of any benefit based upon this creditable service, the employee or person receiving the benefit by reason of his service, shall certify that no period of such service was used for computation of a pension for service in the Armed Forces of the United States. Creditable service for military service may include periods of prior service.
