In addition, Public Act 104-106 (February 10, 1996) amended the Portability Act to allow certain pension benefits that do not exceed one year`s service.
To be covered by these provisions, an appointment may be made on the basis of the exchange contract or another authority with valid appointment power. The trade agreements provide for a bilateral movement.

A professional or professional worker who is not eligible for employment under an exchange contract may appeal under other appointment procedures to the other benefit system.
