  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  8-A.  A  PERSON  WHO  RETIRED PRIOR TO DECEMBER TWENTY-FIRST, NINETEEN
HUNDRED NINETY-EIGHT AND WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN ENTITLED TO THE  PROVISIONS
OF THIS SECTION, MAY MAKE APPLICATION TO SUCH RETIREMENT SYSTEM NO LATER
THAN  DECEMBER  THIRTY-FIRST,  TWO  THOUSAND  FIFTEEN FOR A SUPPLEMENTAL
MILITARY RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE PURSUANT TO THIS SUBDIVISION.  THE SUPPLE-
MENTAL RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE PROVIDED BY THIS  SUBDIVISION  SHALL  BE  IN
LIEU  OF ANY BENEFIT OTHERWISE PROVIDED PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION AND ANY
CREDIT GRANTED FOR MILITARY SERVICE WITH ANY RETIREMENT SYSTEM  OF  THIS
STATE PURSUANT TO ANY OTHER SECTION OF LAW.  UPON RECEIPT OF AN APPLICA-
TION, THE RETIREMENT SYSTEM SHALL DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF SERVICE CREDIT
SUCH PERSON WOULD HAVE BEEN ENTITLED TO RECEIVE PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISIONS
ONE  AND  TWO  OF  THIS SECTION, SUBJECT TO THE LIMITATIONS CONTAINED IN
THIS SECTION. THE SUPPLEMENTAL MILITARY RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE SHALL EQUAL
THE RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE  OF  SUCH  PERSON,  COMPUTED  WITHOUT  OPTIONAL
MODIFICATION  AND  NOT TO EXCEED FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS, MULTIPLIED BY
TWENTY-FIVE ONE HUNDREDTHS OF ONE PERCENT PER MONTH OF THE SERVICE CRED-
IT AS DETERMINED PURSUANT TO  THIS  SUBDIVISION.    ONE-TWELFTH  OF  THE
SUPPLEMENTAL MILITARY RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE SHALL BE ADDED TO THE RETIRE-
MENT  ALLOWANCE  OF SUCH PERSON EACH MONTH. THE BENEFIT PAYABLE PURSUANT
TO THIS SECTION SHALL COMMENCE ON THE NEXT RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE  PAYABLE
AT  LEAST  THIRTY  DAYS  AFTER  THE  RECEIPT OF AN APPLICATION FROM SUCH
PERSON. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SUBDIVISION, RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE SHALL
EXCLUDE ANY ANNUITY DERIVED FROM VOLUNTARY  CONTRIBUTIONS  MADE  BY  THE
INDIVIDUAL,  EXCEPT  THOSE  MADE PURSUANT TO ELECTIONS UNDER SUBDIVISION
