Except as otherwise provided in this subchapter, if any member leaves the employ of the city for any reason except death and retirement, membership in the retirement system shall cease and credited service at that time shall be forfeited. If the member is reemployed by the city prior to July 1, 2013, in a position covered by the retirement system, membership shall be restored. If the reemployment occurs within a period of six years after the date of leaving the employ of the city, the member's credited service last forfeited shall be restored to the member's credit, provided the member returns to the accumulated contributions account any amount withdrawn, together with regular interest from the date of withdrawal to the date of repayment. A reemployed member must notify the retirement system of the member's intention to claim or reject forfeited credited service time within 30 days after reemployment by the city or the effective date of the ordinance from which this section is derived, whichever is later. Upon death or retirement, membership in the retirement system shall cease and credited service shall be used in the calculation of final benefits.
