Loss of Benefit-Disqualification, Ineligibility
___________________

Resignation and Refunding Your Account
If you resign from your position covered by KTRS, you may either withdraw your funds in the retirement system or leave them on deposit. If you withdraw the funds, your membership will be cancelled just as if you had never contributed to KTRS. You may reinstate a withdrawn account if you later return to a KTRS-covered position and earn contributing service equal to one (1) year.
After the account is reinstated, your membership status is the same as if the account had never been withdrawn. For classroom teachers, you will not be entitled to a full year of service credit if your total paid days were less than 180 of a 185-day contract for a regular school or fiscal year. You may, however, purchase credit according to administrative regulations adopted by the Board of Trustees.

Any teacher or employee of a district board of education who willfully violates any provision of KRS 161.164 shall be ineligible for employment in the common schools for a period of five (5) years.

Conviction of a Felony Related to Your Job
During the 2002 Legislative Session, the General Assembly amended KRS 161.470(5) to provide that “persons hired on or after August 1, 2002” who are convicted of “a felony related to his employment” shall forfeit his or her retirement benefits and shall be entitled instead only to a return of his or her retirement contributions with any accumulated interest. Forfeiture of retirement benefits shall be stayed pending any appeal of such a conviction. You should notify the retirement system should you experience such an event.
