Maternity / Paternity / Child Rearing



You may purchase up to two years of service credit if you separated or reduced your hours from Michigan State Police employment for the purposes of maternity, paternity, or child rearing.


  • You cannot have intervening employment of more than 20 hours per week for each week of service credit that is purchased.
  • You may purchase any fraction of a year increment.
  • This service cannot be credited until you have 10 years of service with the Michigan State Police.


Your cost is an actuarial calculation multiplied by the number of years of maternity / paternity / child rearing credit you purchase. ORS will calculate the cost for you upon request.


Send a written request to ORS with a copy of your child's birth certificate or final adoption papers.
