VISTA/Peace Corps



You may purchase up to 2 years of service (YOS) credit for full-time service in the Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) program or the Peace Corps.


  • You cannot receive more than a total of 2 YOS credit for any combination of VISTA, Peace Corps, intervening military service that doesn't meet criteria under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, or nonintervening military service.
  • This service cannot be credited if it is credited under another publicly supported retirement system.
  • This service cannot be credited until you have 10 YOS with the Michigan State Police.


Your cost is an actuarial calculation multiplied by the number of VISTA/Peace Corps years you purchase. The Michigan Office of Retirement Services (ORS) will calculate the cost for you upon request.


Send a written request to ORS with documentation from the organization that lists the dates you served.
