police and fire fund or the Teachers Retirement Association or the Minnesota State Patrol
Retirement Association, or any other public employee retirement system in the state of Minnesota
having a like provision but excluding all other funds providing benefits for police officers or
firefighters shall be entitled when qualified to an annuity from each fund if the person's total
allowable service in all three funds or in any two of these funds totals three or more years,
provided no portion of the allowable service upon which the retirement annuity from one fund is

not apply for the purposes of this section provided the combined service in two or more of these
