Buying service for a leave
Learn about your options for buying service during or after a leave of absence.
Process: lump-sum payment
For any type of leave, you can choose to buy service by making a lump-sum payment once you return from your leave.
To apply to buy service, you will need to complete a form and submit it to your employer.
Here are the steps to take once your leave is over:
- Open and save the Purchase of Service Application form.
- Complete Part A.
- Send the completed form and any requested documents to your current employer. Your employer will complete Part B and send the form to the plan.
Once we receive the completed application, we will send you a statement showing:
- Total cost
- Payment options and due date
Once you have paid the cost to buy service, the plan will add the service to your record.
