It shall be the sole responsibility of the member to obtain, and provide to the Board, verification of this past service rendered, including but not limited to payroll records indicating the amount of compensation received and the amount of hours worked.  In the event that any or all of such original documentation is unavailable, the Board may exercise its discretion pursuant to M.G.L. c. 32, sec. 20(5)(c)(1), on a case by case basis, to accept alternative documentation to verify said service.

For members who purchase such past service rendered as a part-time, provisional, temporary, temporary provisional, seasonal or intermittent employee of Bristol County or any of its member units, creditable service shall be prorated and calculated based on 1040 hours of compensated employment in the aggregate being equivalent to one (1) year of creditable service. Members shall be credited with full months and full years of past service rendered and purchased.
