Chapter 3: JRS & JRF Service Credit & Contributions

Service Credit & Contributions

Service Credit - Judges Retirement System (JRS)

A member of the Judicial Retirement System (JRS) earns one month of service credit for each full month of compensated service. A member does not earn service credit for serving only part of a month, with one exception. In the calendar month at the beginning or end of a term, a member who holds office for at least 10 days earns one month of service credit. For any earning period, retirement contributions are due on all compensation earned, regardless of the number of hours worked.

Service Credit - Judges Retirement Fund (JRF)

Members of the Judges' Retirement Fund (JRF) earn service credit in years or fractions of years. A member earns one year of service credit for each full 12-month period of compensated service. At retirement, if there is a 12-month period, which is not complete, the member also earns a fraction of a year of service credit. For any earning period, retirement contributions are due on all compensation earned, regardless of the number of hours worked.
