They may not address a particular situation. Please consult your compensation advisor to confirm whether specific periods of service may be bought back and to determine the exact cost of buying back any period of service. In case of apparent conflict between the applicable legislative provisions and the information obtained through the use of this estimator, the legislative provisions will apply.
