Can I combine service from different systems to qualify for increased benefits?

(1) You may combine service to determine retirement eligibility. You may combine your service in all systems to determine your eligibility for a disability or service retirement allowance from your current system, a service retirement allowance from your prior system, or an indexed retirement allowance from LEOFF Plan 2, PERS Plan 3, SERS Plan 3, or TRS Plan 3.
(2) You may not combine service for any other purpose. You may not combine your service to qualify for any other benefit offered by a particular system. For example:
(a) PERS Plan 1 military service. You may not combine service from other systems to qualify for military service credit in PERS Plan 1 under RCW 41.40.170.
(b) LEOFF Plan 2 post-separation benefits. You may not combine your accrued service from other systems for purposes of qualifying for a refund of one hundred fifty percent of the LEOFF Plan 2 member's accumulated contributions under RCW 41.26.540.
