How Do I Earn Credits Towards My Pension?

You earn credits by working for an employer who contributes to the Plan. You earn 2.5% of a pension credit for each weekly pay period that you work in covered employment. This means that by the time you’ve worked 40 weeks in a year, you’ve earned one full pension credit for that year (which is the most you can earn in a year). The maximum number of pension credits you can earn in a lifetime is 25. We keep track of your credits throughout your career, from the day your Pension Plan participation starts until the day it ends.
