DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
TRF service credit for military service. Extends from 18 months to 24 months after the completion of active military service the time by which a member of the teachers' retirement fund (TRF) is required to return to: (1) active teaching; (2) an approved four year teacher training program; or (3) for an employee of a state institution of higher education, baccalaureate or post- baccalaureate education; in order to receive TRF service credit for the member's active military service. Provides for an extension of up to 36 months (rather than 30 months) after the member's discharge if the TRF board determines that an illness, an injury, or a disability related to the member's military service prevents the member from returning to active teaching service or to a teacher education program by the 24 month deadline.
