(A) To be eligible for purchase of service credit under sections 3307.70 and 3307.76 of the Revised Code, service credit must:

(1) Be non-teaching service with an Ohio public school, college or university or be service with the state of Ohio or its agencies, instrumentalities or subdivisions; and

(2) Be properly certified by the official employer or custodian of records on a form approved by the retirement system. This certification shall be based upon a legitimate source of documentation such as payroll or retirement records of the state, municipality, public institution, or public school. When records have been destroyed, an affidavit from the member may be used, but only in conjunction with other documented evidence establishing proof and amount of service. The determination of acceptable documentation shall reside solely with the retirement system and its decision shall be final.

(C) A member is ineligible to purchase credit under section 3307.76 of the Revised Code if credit for the service may be obtained from the public employees retirement system or the school employees retirement system or if the credit is for service that is used in the calculation of any retirement benefit that has been paid, is currently being paid, or is payable in the future to the member.
