Buying service for a leave

Learn about your options for buying service during or after a leave of absence.

Process: lump-sum payment

For any type of leave, you can choose to buy service by making a lump-sum payment once you return from your leave.

To apply to buy service, you will need to complete a form and submit it to WorkSafeBC Total Rewards.

Here are the steps to take once your leave is over:

  1. Open and save the Purchase of Service Application form.
  2. Complete Part A.
  3. If the leave was granted by a former employer, submit the completed form and any requested documents to the employer that granted your leave; your former employer will complete Part C and return the form and documents to you.
  4. Send the completed form and documents to your current employer. Your employer will complete Part B and send the form to the plan.

Once we receive the completed application, we will send you a statement showing:

  • Total cost
  • Payment options and due date

Once you have paid the cost to buy service, the plan will add the service to your record.
