AS 14.25.100. Credit For Service in the Armed Forces.

(a) A member who served as an active member of the armed forces of the United States may receive credited service under this plan up to a maximum of five years if the member received a discharge under other than dishonorable conditions and is not entitled to receive retirement benefits from the United States government for the same service. Each 12 months of military service equals one school year, and lesser military periods will be determined for credit purposes in a proportionate ratio to a year. Credit for service in the armed forces shall be granted only if the member makes contributions for the service in the same manner as required for outside service under AS 14.25.060. The military service credited under this section shall be included in the 10-year limitation of outside service as specified in AS 14.25.060 , except if entry into the armed forces is immediately preceded by Alaska membership service and following discharge is continued by Alaska membership service within one year thereafter, service may not be counted for purposes of determining the applicability of the 10-year limitation on outside service.

(b) Where a member is unable to resume teaching in a public school within one year following discharge because of hospitalization, rehabilitation training, a disability derived while in the armed forces, or other like circumstances, the administrator shall determine the allowance or disallowance of any service in the armed forces.

(c) [Repealed, Sec. 7 ch 155 SLA 1976].

(d) [Repealed, Sec. 7 ch 155 SLA 1976].

(e) A member may not be credited with the same period of service in the armed forces under this section if credit for that military service was granted under the public employees' retirement system (AS 39.35). The combined period of military service claimed under this section and AS 39.35 may not exceed five years.
