Memorial Day 2016

Remembering Our Veterans on Memorial Day

[Posted on 05/27/2016 at 1:43 PM]

In appreciation of our veterans’ service on Memorial Day, we’d like to share a fact sheet from the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS) on how defined benefit plans help protect retirement security for members of our military. For MOSERS members, keep in mind:

  • Members of the MSEP and MSEP 2000 may be eligible to purchase up to 4 years of active-duty military service at a subsidized rate.
  • Members of the MSEP, MSEP 2000 and MSEP 2011 may qualify for automatic credit of active-duty military service if employed by the state immediately prior to being called to, or volunteering for, active military duty and immediately returning to state employment.

Reminder—purchase or transfer of service must be completed prior to applying for MOSERS retirement benefits. Please contact a benefit counselor at (800) 827-1063 to see if you qualify.
