(A)   In order to be eligible for the supplementary benefit provided in this chapter, the individual must be a fill-time employee of the city. Non-full time employees of the city, including but not limited to, part-time, temporary, or seasonal employees, are not eligible for supplementary benefits under this chapter.
   (B)   In order to be eligible for supplementary benefits as provided in this chapter, a member must have received mobilization orders to report for active duty as a result of a mobilization ordered by the Governor or the President of the United States. Entitlement to supplementary benefits under this chapter shall commence when the member has exhausted a period of 15 consecutive or non-consecutive days in any calendar year for military training, as provided in IC 10-2-4-3, as a result of the mobilization. In the event the members’ period of active duty extends into a succeeding calendar year, supplementary benefits under this chapter shall cease until such time as the member has exhausted a similar period of 15 calendar days of military training as provided in IC 10-2-4-3 for such succeeding calendar year, at which time benefits under this chapter shall recommence.
