Service you are entitled to receive if you left participating employment (either terminated or was placed on leave), entered the Armed Forces of the United States (within 3 months), and subsequently returned to participating employment within two years of receiving an honorable discharge.
If your employment was in a nonparticipating status, such as seasonal or temporary, the service must be purchased in order for the member to be eligible to receive free military service credit. If you contributed, but subsequently took a refund for the period immediately prior to the military service, the refund of contributions must be repaid in order for you to qualify for free military service credit. Service credit and creditable compensation, as provided in 38 U.S.C. sec. 4318, shall be given for a period not to exceed 6 years.
