and service. It is not acceptable without the documentation
listed on the form.
Use this application to purchase (buyback) previous
full-time or part-time public
service rendered within New York State prior to your NYCERS
membership. Note: Tier 1 members may only buy
back public service rendered in a NYCERS-eligible title.
