Service Purchases

Can members purchase service in the Supplemental Plan?

Yes, some types of service may be purchased, provided that the member is active in the class to which the coverage applies. Purchasing service can increase the amount of pension and/or allow the member to retire earlier. 
In this section, you'll find information about past and ongoing service purchases:

  • Past service is credited service in the Primary Plan the member earned before the Supplemental Plan coverage start date.
  • Ongoing service purchases are leave periods occurring after the Supplemental Plan coverage start date.

Ongoing Service
