What's New in 2020

It is now simpler to buy back periods of work or periods of absence without pay

Simplified service buy-backs

The form used to apply for a service buy-back has been simplified in order to ease the filing process. From now on, Retraite Québec will be responsible for contacting the employers concerned in order to complete your application. As soon as your form has been completed, you can send it directly to Retraite Québec, either via our online service or by mail.

In addition, you no longer have to enclose the Attestation de l'employeur concernant un rachat de service form (RSP-728) (French only) with your application because the employer or employers concerned will now send it directly to Retraite Québec.

Why should you buy back service?

Service buy-backs can have a positive effect on your retirement pension amount and on when you can retire. This provision of your pension plan can, under certain conditions, allow you to have periods of absences without pay or of work during which you did not contribute to your public-sector pension plan recognized.

The new forms are available on our website. For more information on service buy-backs, see our Buy-Backs brochure.
