What types of service you can buy

Learn about the types of service you can buy to potentially increase your future pension.


Buying service for a period of reduced pay

If you worked for less than your full assignment for a period of time, you may be able to buy the difference between your normal, full assignment and the amount you actually worked.

If you normally work less than 100 per cent full time, you can only buy enough service to bring you up to the amount of your normal full assignment.

To buy service for a period of reduced pay, you must have:

  • Been employed by your employer for three years before the period of reduced pay
  • Continued working for the employer during the period of reduced pay

Contact your employer if this applies to you, and you are interested in buying service for a period of reduced pay.
