Purchase of Service

for Inactive IMRF Members
Forest pathway

If you are an inactive IMRF member, you are not eligible to submit an application to purchase service. However, if IMRF received your application before you stopped working for your IMRF employer you are allowed a one-time lump sum purchase service payment after your IMRF termination date.

In some cases, and for some types of service, you may be eligible to submit an application and purchase IMRF service if you are participating in an Illinois reciprocal retirement system.
