8. Does my time with EAA count toward Michigan Public School Employees' Retirement System service credit?
No, your time with EAA does not count toward Michigan Public School Employees' Retirement System service credit and the time cannot be purchased as an out-of-system purchase. However, if you were a former Michigan Public School Employees' Retirement System employee prior to working with EAA you may be eligible to purchase up to 5 years of universal buy-in service credit. Certain conditions apply, so contact the Michigan Office of Retirement Services to verify eligibility and cost.
