MSEP 2011 & Purchasing Military Service

Jun 24, 2024, 10:49 AM by MOSERS

I am interested in buying some of my military time and was wondering how that works?

Purchase of prior military service is not available to members of MSEP 2011 or the Judicial Plan 2011.

However, if you are called to or volunteer for active military duty while employed in a MOSERS-covered position, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) protects your employment and benefit rights, provided you meet the eligibility requirements. You may be eligible to receive credit for your active-duty service if you were employed by the state immediately before entering the armed forces, then return to state employment within the timeframe specified by USERRA and provide a copy of your honorable discharge and military DD214 (Member-4) and meet any other requirements under USERRA.

If you have additional questions, please refer to our Purchasing and Transferring Service Guide for MSEP 2011 Members or contact a MOSERS benefit counselor for more information.
