EMS Lateral Transfer Service Credit Calculation Request Form

Monday, September 21, 2020

Uniformed firefighters who transferred into the District of Columbia Police Officers and Firefighters’ Retirement Plan (the Plan) under the “Paramedic and Emergency Technician Lateral Transfer to Firefighting Amendment Act of 2001” (D.C. Law 14-28; D.C. Code §5-409.01(a)) (“Lateral EMT Act”), may purchase their prior lateral paramedic/EMT service to have it credited in their retirement benefit calculation. Prior EMS service automatically applies in determining your vesting and retirement eligibility but is not applied to the calculated amount of your retirement benefit if you do not purchase the prior service.

Complete and return the downloadable form to your Human Resources Office to request an estimate of your purchase of service deposit.
