Every year our members spend countless hours in their respective communities supporting local charities and groups. A favorite of the IAFF for over 60 years has been the Fill the Boot program. You see us every year around Labor Day standing alongside roadways, holding our boots high in hopes that you will help us fill them with contributions to support this cause. Below we're sharing with you a simple statement that shows you why we hold our boots high and will continue for years to come. Thank you to anyone that has ever taken the few seconds it takes to roll down your window and join us.
House Bill 116 (HB 116) was passed by the Alaska Legislature on April 18, 2014, and signed into law by Governor Parnell on July 11, 2014. This bill provides additional benefits under AS 39.35.340 to peace officers and firefighters who previously served in the military, and are members of the Public Employees’ Retirement System Defined Benefit Plan (PERS DB),
Prior to HB 116, qualifying members could purchase up to 5 years of military service credit only to increase their retirement benefit. However, under HB 116, qualifying members may now also claim up to 5 years of military service in order to qualify for premium-free retiree medical benefits. Claimed military service may not be used to satisfy the credited service requirements for normal retirement.
