In such case, any credited service rendered by the member, or compensation paid to the member, after the member is enrolled in the DC Plan shall apply solely to the calculation of the member's benefit under the DC Plan and Plan '10 and shall not be considered for purposes of determining the accrued benefit under the member's original plan.
