From Donnie McGee's Report to the Board

October 16, 2006


Dear Colleagues,
 
Good news! It may be time to redeem credit for the years you and/or your colleagues have put in as 03 employees in this state. A notice about the purchase of creditable service for former “contract employees” was printed on all state employees’ pay advice statements of 9/22/06. I have copied that message below:
 
BEGINNING IN OCTOBER, IF YOU HAVE TEN YEARS OF CREDITABLE SERVICE WITH THE STATE RETIREMENT SYSTEM AND HAD FORMERLY PROVIDED SERVICE AS A “CONTRACT EMPLOYEE,” YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO PURCHASE THAT SERVICE AS CREDITABLE SERVICE TOWARD YOUR RETIREMENT. PLEASE CONTACT THE STATE RETIREMENT BOARD AT http://www.mass.gov/treasury/srb.htm , and click on "Contract Service Buy Back". Or, call 617-367-7770, OR 1-800-392-6014 (WITHIN MA).
 
The website address below will bring you directly to the buyback form needed by former “03” or “contract employees”. No buyback form was sent with this notice.  http://www.mass.gov/treasury/forms/ret/SBR_ServiceBuyBack4.pdf
 
If you have questions, contact the State Retirement Board at the number(s) above and/or the Human Resources Office on your campus. If you still have questions, please contact me.
 
Good luck to everyone.
 
Donnie
