Periods of reduced pay
Find out how to buy service if you worked less than your full assignment for a period of time.
If you worked 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.
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
- Worked at your full assignment at some point before the period of reduced pay
- Continued working for the employer during the period of reduced pay
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.
Contact your employer if you are interested in buying service for a period of reduced pay.
