Leave of Absence

A provision for Leave of Absence is made for members who are not yet vested with the minimum 10 years (joined before June 30, 2010) or 15 years (joined after July 1, 2010) of Fund participation required to draw the Pension. The member must notify the Fund within 90 days of leaving law enforcement, and again within 30 days of returning to law enforcement. To request a Leave of Absence, complete and return the forms below. Once these forms are received, they are reviewed by the Board of Commissioners.

The member is required to pay monthly dues during the leave period, which cannot exceed 12 months. Effective July 1, 2010, the member must return to law enforcement following the Leave of Absence and match the Leave of Absence with an equal amount of continued employment. No death benefits or disability benefits apply during the Leave of Absence.
