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:

  1. Open and save the Purchase of Service Application form.
  2. Complete Part A.
  3. 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

You can find your statement in Message Centre after signing in to My Account.

Once you have paid the cost to buy service, the plan will add the service to your record.
