72-2628. Eligibility for school annuity; how annuities paid; life annuities and refund annuities at retirement; employment after retirement, when; effect. Except as otherwise provided in this act, any school employee who has attained the age of 65 shall be eligible for a school annuity, but any employee who has attained the age of 60, at such school employee's choice, may be granted an annuity beginning on any September first from age 60. Any school annuity granted prior to age 65 shall not be the standard annuity, but shall be determined in accordance with the early retirement schedule specified in K.S.A. 72-5518 and amendments thereto, except as provided in K.S.A. 72-5513 and amendments thereto for those who retire prior to age 60 because of physical or mental disability. All annuities shall be paid in equal monthly installments beginning on the first of September of that calendar year. The board may provide for types of life annuities and refund annuities to be selected by the school employee at the time of such school employee's retirement.

No person shall receive a school retirement annuity while employed in any position wherein service credit is being earned toward benefits in another retirement system of the state of Kansas.

No person shall be employed in school service while receiving a service or disability annuity provided by this act. If any person engaged in school service shall retire and has received one or more installments of a school annuity and thereafter shall reenter school service, such person shall not be entitled to any service credit for the time spent in school service after reentering such service, nor shall such person be entitled to receive any installments of the service annuity withheld from such person while engaged in such school service. Deductions shall not be made from such person's salary for such school service, except that any person who may have reentered school service as a constitutional officer shall be permitted to pay into the state retirement board 4% of the $5,000 of such person's salary as such officer, while in such service after reentry, and thereby become fully reinstated in the school retirement plan as of the time of such reentry into school service. Any person reentering school service as provided in this section and thereafter retiring again shall not be entitled to any installment payments of the service annuity until the first September following such last retirement from school service, except that any school employee retired as provided in this section may perform school service as a substitute employee, not to exceed 90 teaching days in any one school year. If such substitute employee continues in school service longer than 90 teaching days in any one school year, such substitute employee's retirement annuity shall cease and become effective again on the first September following such last retirement. Persons who are suspended annuitants on the day preceding April 25, 1969, shall be paid retroactively all savings annuity installments withheld.
