You may be eligible to establish retirement credit for a temporary disability caused by a job-related disease or accident. The maximum period is twelve months and must be applied for within six months of returning to service following the temporary disability.
The cost will be the employee contributions based on the salary you were receiving immediately prior to the disability, plus interest. The payment must be made within two months of the time you are provided with the cost to establish the service, or you will forfeit your right to establish the service.
Documentation of proof of the temporary disability will be required. In most cases, the required documents will be the Employer’s First Report of Injury form and the Notice of Payment or Suspension of Benefits.
