Buy back academy time

Post by Hopeful2bacop » Thu Mar 21, 2019 5:19 pm

Anyone successful at buying back academy time? Unfortunately I was not enrolled into the PFRS until after the academy, and recently tried to purchase the time back but was denied. Was wondering if anyone had any luck or insight on doing it. Thanks.

Full time academy time or SLEO II academy time?

I've heard stories of people buying back both, but have a better chance of buying back full time. If you've already submitted it, and were denied I believe you can contest that. Call them and ask.

It was for fulltime. Got a letter stating “Police Trainee” is not eligible to buy back time for PFRS

I was able to buy my time back. I went full time for an agency. I did the pension service credit purchase via MBOS and they sent me a price, I sent a check in.

It appears from job postings that I have seen on the federal government job board that they have civilianized the military fire service. Could you ever seen them doing the same to the Military Police Service?

Has anyone bought back academy time that was an alternate route and got hired by an agency after you graduated? If so did you need to appeal?
