(a) The total amount of employee contributions to the fund by or on behalf of the employee that would have been required for the six months’ period if the employee had been a member of the system during that period, plus interest at the rate of eight percent per annum from the date the contributions would have been made, which amount shall be credited to the regular account of the member; and

(b) The total amount of employer contributions to the fund the employer of the employee would have been required to make in respect to the employee if the employee had been a member of the system during the six months’ period, plus interest at the rate of eight percent per annum from the date the contributions would have been made, which amount shall be credited to the reserve for pension accounts in the fund.
