Plan on buying back a leave from 2014? The tax deadline is approaching

February 02, 2015

Were you on a leave (such as a maternity leave) that ended in 2014? If so, you have until April 30, 2015 to tell us whether you intend to buy back credit for that leave and qualify to receive a pension adjustment (PA). You still have five years from the end of your leave to buy back this credit, however, tax rules may limit the amount you are able to purchase.
