Any member of Plan A, Plan B, Plan L, Plan Y, Plan '10, or Plan 16 who desires to purchase credited service for: 153
(1) prior City service;
(2) leaves of absence as authorized under subsection 22-801(2), this subsection (2) also to apply to members of Plan D, Plan J, or Plan X;
(3) governmental service;
(4) a period of service with the City during which membership in the Retirement System was deferred; or
(5) a period of previously ineligible temporary service, under subsection 22-803(7) of this Title;
and who failed to apply within the applicable period after their date of hire or the effective date of this Title (January 13, 1999), may nevertheless purchase said service, provided that the member pays interest on the purchase amount calculated from the date the employee was hired, rehired, or returned to service after a leave of absence. A member who had not purchased a period of service during which membership was deferred or which was previously ineligible temporary service may purchase said service, provided that the member pays interest on the purchase amount calculated from the date the employee would have made contributions if the employee had been a member at the time.
