AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  certain members who re-enter public service

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivisions 2 and 4 of section 645 of the  retirement  and
social security law, subdivision 2 as amended by chapter 322 of the laws
of  2002  and  subdivision 4 as added by chapter 640 of the laws of 1998
and as renumbered by chapter 646 of the laws of  1999,  are  amended  to
read as follows:
  2.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any person [other than
a retiree of a public retirement system,] who previously was a member of
a public retirement system and whose membership in such  public  retire-
ment  system  ceased  by reason of (i) insufficient service credit, (ii)
withdrawal of accumulated contributions, or (iii) withdrawal of  member-
ship,  upon  rejoining  such  public retirement system or another public
retirement system, shall be deemed to have been a member of his  or  her
current  retirement  system  during the entire period of time commencing
with and subsequent to the original date of such previous ceased member-
ship, provided that such person (a) makes application  therefor  to  the
administrative  head of his or her current public retirement system, and
(b) repays the amount refunded,  if  any,  at  the  time  such  previous
membership  ceased,  together  with interest at the rate of five percent
per annum compounded annually from the date of such refund  through  the
date  of  repayment. Upon such reinstatement of date of membership, such
member shall be entitled to all the rights, benefits and  privileges  to
which  he or she would have been entitled had his or her current member-
ship begun on such original date of membership except that,  solely  for
the  purposes  of  granting  retirement  credit  to  members of a public
retirement system other than the  New  York  city  teachers'  retirement

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
