Notes: CONCERNS from Eddie - 02/10/18

1. It is limited to Civil Service jurisdictions only. Shouldn’t it include all jurisdictions?
2. It does not require enrollment in the PFRS, if appointed. Thus, an appointee may be subject to enrollment in the PERS. There should be a corresponding amendment to the Pensions statute to require PFRS enrollment.
3. It is possible that as a result of the legislation, a member may be appointed over the age of 40 and will not reach 25 years of service in the pension system before the mandatory retirement age of 65. To address this, consideration should be made to (a) for these individuals, extend the mandatory retirement age to 65 or upon reaching 25 years in the retirement system, whichever is later; or (b) require that anyone who is placed on a subsequent eligible list and appointed from that list, purchase sufficient military time or other time if applicable, so that they may reach 25 years of service prior to the mandatory retirement age of 65.
