AGO 1966 NO. 85 >

Under the 1955 paid firemen's pension act (chapter 41.18 RCW) a fireman's longevity pay should be included as a factor in determining the amount of his contributions to the firemen's pension fund, and the disability and pension allowances payable to disabled and retiring firemen without regard to whether or not such longevity pay is attached to a rank.
