Provides that, after completing twenty-five years of creditable service, any member may have service in the armed forces that was performed prior to membership in the retirement system credited to him or her as a member. However, the total number of years of military service credit from all sources, as authorized by any statute, may not exceed five years.

Requires the member to also contribute to the member reserve, either in a lump sum or installments, the member's contribution as determined by the director.

Does not apply to any individual, not a veteran within the meaning of RCW 41.04.005. Military service shall not be credited to any member who is receiving full military retirement benefits pursuant to Title 10 United States Code.
