AN ACT relative to the determination of absence and return of contributions of members of the retirement system.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

52:1 Retirement System; Membership; Absence From Service. Amend RSA 100-A:3, V to read as follows:

V. A member shall cease to be a member if (a) he or she is absent from service for more than [6] 2 years [in any period of 7 consecutive years after last becoming a member]; (b) he or she withdraws his or her accumulated contributions; or (c) he or she becomes a beneficiary or dies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the board of trustees shall continue the membership of a member while in the armed forces of the United States provided such member does not withdraw his or her accumulated contributions.

52:2 Retirement System; Return of Contributions; Group I. Amend RSA 100-A:11, I(a) to read as follows:

(a) If a group I member ceases to be an employee or teacher for reasons other than retirement or death and if he or she has not elected to receive a vested deferred retirement allowance under RSA 100-A:10, the amount of his or her accumulated contributions shall be paid [to him] within 3 months after his or her written request therefor, provided that the member may not file a written request for such payment until at least 30 days from the date the member ceases to be an employee or a teacher and provided that the member may not again become a group I member during said 30-day period. If a group I member ceases to be a member because of absence from service for more than [6] 2 years [in any period of 7 consecutive years after last becoming a member], his or her accumulated contributions shall be paid [to him] within 3 months after the board is notified to that effect.

52:3 Retirement System; Return of Contributions; Group II. Amend RSA 100-A:11, II(a) to read as follows:

(a) If a group II member ceases to be a permanent policeman or permanent fireman for reasons other than retirement or death and if he or she has not elected to receive a vested deferred retirement allowance under RSA 100-A:10, the amount of his or her accumulated contributions shall be paid [to him] within 3 months after his or her written request therefor. If a group II member ceases to be a member because of absence from service for more than [6] 2 years [in any period of 7 consecutive years after last becoming a member], his or her accumulated contributions shall be paid [to him] within 3 months after the board is notified to that effect.
