VISTA/Peace Corps



You may purchase up to two years of service 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 two years of service credit for any combination of VISTA, Peace Corps, intervening military service that doesn't meet criteria under USERRA, 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 years of service with the Michigan State Police.


Your cost is an actuarial calculation multiplied by the number of VISTA/Peace Corps years you purchase. 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.
