1. All persons who become police officers or fire fighters after the date the city is required to come under the retirement system, shall become members of the retirement system as a condition of their employment, except that a police chief or a fire chief who would not complete twenty-two years of service under this chapter by the time the chief attains fifty-five years of age shall, upon written request to the system, be exempt from this chapter, and except as otherwise provided in subsection 3.  Notwithstanding section 97B.1A, a police chief or fire chief who is exempt from this chapter is exempt from chapter 97B.  Members of the system established in this chapter shall not be required to make contributions under any other pension or retirement system of a city, county, or the state of Iowa, anything to the contrary notwithstanding.

2. Should any member cease to be employed as a police officer or fire fighter by a city, or should the member become a beneficiary or die, the member shall thereupon cease to be a member of the system.

3. a. As used in this section, unless the context otherwise requires, “reemployed” or “reemployment” means the employment of a person as a police officer or fire fighter by any participating city after the person has commenced receiving a service retirement allowance under section 411.6.

b. If a person is reemployed, the person shall not become an active member of the system upon reemployment, and the person so reemployed and the participating city shall not make contributions to the system based upon the person's compensation for reemployment.  A person who is so reemployed shall not be eligible to receive a service retirement allowance for the period of reemployment.  The service retirement allowance shall be reinstated upon termination of the reemployment, but the service retirement allowance shall not be recalculated based upon the person's reemployment.  Notwithstanding section 97B.1A or any other provision of law to the contrary, a person reemployed as provided in this subsection shall be exempt from chapter 97B.
