INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Pensionable Service'

The pensionable service value calculated for each worker is most commonly based on the employer's record of the actual units (hours, years etc) worked. This includes any periods of purchased service which the pensioner has opted to purchase. Pension plans may have differing calculations for pensionable service, so it is important for prospective pensioners to be aware of the terms of their pension plan.
