An Act To Update the Laws Governing the Maine Public Employees Retirement System as They Relate to Wartime Veterans
Sec. 1. 5 MRSA 17760, sub- 3, C, as enacted by PL 2003, c. 693, 3, is amended to read:
Sec. 2. 5 MRSA 18360, sub- 2, E, as amended by PL 2007, c. 249, 29, is further amended to read:
Current law allows members of the Maine Public Employees Retirement System to purchase military time to add those years to their years of creditable service for purposes of calculating their retirement benefits. The cost of purchasing military time depends in part on whether a member served during a federally recognized period of conflict. This bill updates the definition of “federally recognized period of conflict” to include service during operations in Lebanon, August 21, 1982 to February 26, 1984; operations in Grenada, October 25, 1983 to November 2, 1983; the Persian Gulf War, August 2, 1990 to April 6, 1991; and operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, October 7, 2001 to the present.
