Purchasing Service Credit
Several types of prior service may be purchased and included in your total years of service. Purchasing service credit can increase your retirement benefit* and, in some cases, allow you to retire earlier.
VCERA offers two types of service purchases: prior County/District service and prior public service. For purposes of vesting and retirement eligibility, purchased County/District service counts toward these VCERA milestones, but purchased prior public service does not.
