You may be eligible to purchase credit for previous periods of service, which will result in a higher monthly allowance when you retire. You should review the possible purchase with the Retirement Plan Office/Membership Section as soon as possible; significant interest penalties apply to some purchases if they are not started within a specified period. You may make your purchase in a lump sum, rollover, or by payroll deductions.
