AGLO 1975 No. 58 >  June 6, 1975
PENSIONS - RETIREMENT - FIREMEN - MANDATORY RETIREMENT
SURVIVORS' BENEFITS (1) It is not within the authority of either a local board or the state board for volunteer firemen to require all volunteer firemen who are enrolled under the pension provisions of chapter 41.24 RCW to retire upon attaining age 65; the only volunteer firemen required to retire at such age are those who have been members of the pension system and have served for a period of twenty-five years as active members of a regularly organized volunteer fire department. (2) A volunteer fireman enrolled under the pension provisions of chapter 41.24 RCW prior to July 1, 1973, may not elect to remain under the prior laws, pay the lesser fees required thereby, and claim the lesser benefits thereunder.
