Section: 43:13-22.49g: Termination of service as elected official; ineligibility for special benefits; refund or credit of contributions; election of pensions; dual pensions

a. A member making contributions pursuant to the provisions of this supplementary act who is not eligible for any benefits hereunder may, upon termination of such service as an elected official of the city, elect to receive a refund of his contributions in accordance with the provisions of section 29 of P.L.1954, c. 218 (C. 43:13-22.31); but if an elected official of the city is a member of the retirement system on the basis of other public service, no application for a refund of contributions may be approved until he has terminated all service covered by the system and makes application for a refund of all contributions made to the retirement system. If all or any part of a member's service as an elected official of the city is applied toward qualifying for benefits under any other provisions of P.L.1954, c. 218 (C. 43:13-22.3 et seq.), no return of contributions made on the basis of service as an elected official of the city shall be approved; in that event, service established as an elected official of the city and salaries pertaining thereto shall be credited in the same manner as all other service and salaries covered by the retirement system.

b. At the time of retirement, a member enrolled on the basis of service as an elected official of the city as well as other public service shall be permitted to elect the largest possible pension if he qualifies for benefits under both the provisions of this supplementary act and P.L.1954, c. 218 (C. 43:13-22.3 et seq.). Upon the election of the retirement benefits provided by service as an elected official of the city by this supplementary act, an application for a refund of contributions made on the basis of such other public service may be approved.

c. An elected official of the city electing to receive a pension under any other law of the State shall be ineligible to receive a pension for the same service under this supplementary act or P.L.1954, c. 218 (C. 43:13-22.3 et seq.).
