Q:

Retirement Incentive Plans: How much service can I purchase? How much service will Clemson University purchase?



A:
  • Non-qualified service:  The maximum non-qualified service the employee and employer can purchase is a combined total of five years. Please refer to the RIP for program-specific incentive limits, as these limits cap the amount of non-qualified service Clemson will purchase.
  • Qualified service:  The amount of qualified service the employee may purchase is unlimited.  Please refer to the RIP for program-specific incentive limits, as these limits cap the amount of qualified service Clemson will purchase.

If you wish to purchase service credit (qualified or non-qualified), please contact the Office of Human Resources as soon as possible. All purchases must be completed prior to the program’s end date.
