Is it possible to receive more than one month of service credit in a single retirement plan for a calendar month?

You may not receive more than one month of service credit for a calendar month, or twelve months of service credit during a service credit year, in any one retirement plan.
This includes, but is not limited to, receiving more than one month of service credit during a calendar month for:
(1) Working in two or more positions covered by the same retirement system;
(2) Military service and service as an employee in the same month;
(3) Purchasing service credit for a period of paid or unpaid leave that occurred during the same month you earned service credit for service as an employee;
(4) Serving as an elected or appointed official during the same month you earned service credit for service as an employee; or
(5) Working more than the minimum number of hours required to earn one month of service credit.
example:
Mary, a PERS 1 member, worked full time for the department of retirement systems continuously for five years from January 1, 1996, through December 31, 2000. During the same period, she worked evenings and Saturdays (full time) in a PERS eligible position for the department of licensing. Mary earned a total of five years of service credit, which is the maximum service credit a member may earn in a five-year period.
