PRIOR SERVICE PURCHASE PROGRAM (PSP)

Prior Service Purchase program is a voluntary program that allows officers who served in the military to purchase service credit in the Virginia Retirement System.* The service credit you purchase will add to your total years of service credit, and therefore increase the monthly allowance you and your qualified survivors would receive from the Virginia Retirement System.
