20-2621. Purchase of additional benefits for service credit by certain judges. (1) Any judge, who first became a member of the retirement system for judges after attaining age 60 years, may elect to purchase additional benefits for service credit under the retirement system for judges. In no case shall a judge be entitled to purchase additional benefits as provided in this section if the judge's number of years of credited service and number of years of service credit purchased as provided in this section exceeds 15 years. The benefit for each such year of service credit purchased as provided in this section shall be as provided in K.S.A. 20-2610 and amendments thereto. Such benefit shall be based on the annual compensation of such judge at the time the judge purchases such additional benefits. Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 74-49,123 and amendments thereto, such member may purchase such additional benefits by making application therefor prior to date of retirement and making a single lump-sum payment representing the amount that a judge would normally contribute under the system had the years of service credit purchased by the judge as provided in this section actually been years of credited service. Such lump-sum payment shall be based on an amount equal to the then present value of the benefits being purchased as determined by the actuary using the judge's attained age, annual compensation at the time of purchase and the actuarial assumptions and tables then in use by this system. The lump-sum payment shall be made on the date specified by the board.
(2) The provisions of this section shall take effect on and after July 1, 1994.
