Increasing Pensionable Service

Management and Professional Staff

You may be able to purchase a period of prior service if it is:

  • Prior employment with a UAPP employer when you did not make pension contributions
  • Prior pensionable service with a Canadian non-UAPP employer provided you meet certain conditions

You cannot do this more than two years after obtaining a continuing position (i.e., a position without an end date).
