Whenever, as a result of the resumption by the counties pursuant to Article XXVII of the Constitution of functions relating to the administration of aid to the aged and aid to the needy blind theretofore performed by the state, any person ceases to be employed by the state and is employed by a county in which this chapter has become operative, the person shall become a member of the retirement association of the county immediately upon his entrance into the county service.

Any such member of a county retirement system shall be entitled to credit in the county retirement system for service for which he was entitled to credit in the Public Employees’ Retirement System at the time of cessation of his employment by the state, without the necessity of payment of any additional contributions in respect to that service, when and if (a) the board of retirement receives certification from the Board of Administration of the Public Employees’ Retirement System of the state service with which the person was entitled to be credited by the Public Employees’ Retirement System at the time of cessation of his state employment; and (b) there is paid into the employees’ retirement fund of the county an amount equal to the normal contributions of the person to the Public Employees’ Retirement System, together with the interest credited thereto, which amount shall be credited to the individual account of the member in the county employee’s retirement system, and shall thereafter for all purposes be deemed to be the member’s contribution to the county retirement system in respect to the service so certified; and (c) there is paid into the employees’ retirement fund of the county an additional amount equal to the amount of such normal contributions, together with the interest credited thereto, which additional amount shall thereafter for all purposes be deemed to be the contributions of the employer county to the county retirement system in respect to the service so certified.
