Cost for non-contributory service

The cost to buy non-contributory service is based on:

  • The number of months of service you want to buy
  • Your current full-time gross monthly salary (or full-time equivalent, if you work part time)
  • The current employee and employer contribution rates

You are responsible for paying the entire cost, unless your employer has an agreement to pay a portion of it. Ask your employer if this type of agreement applies to you.
