Prior NON-Membership Service Buyback (MSRB)

Information for employees with non-membership service

CETA-City/Town/County

Members with CETA employment are eligible to buy back this service.

If you were employed under the CETA program by a city or town, you must provide official documentation from the appropriate city, town or county indicating your exact dates of service, the exact salaries or compensation received for each calendar year, and what the FTE (full time equivalent) the position was. Without this information, we are unable to calculate the exact amount of creditable service that is eligible.

The cost to purchase this time is an amount equal to that which would have been withheld as regular deductions from your regular compensation for such period had you been a member of the State Retirement System during this period, plus interest.
