In many cases, Cash Balance Benefit Program contributions and interest will not cover the full cost of all eligible Cash Balance service that you performed.
However, if you have contributions from overtime, or rollover funds in your Cash Balance account, those funds may also be applied to the cost of covering your eligible Cash Balance service (these funds do not convert to service credit).
The law prohibits the same service from being covered under more than one plan, or more than one program within a plan. However, you may purchase credit under the Defined Benefit Program for any eligible Cash Balance service you performed. Because you never performed any eligible Cash Balance service, there is no service to convert.
However, as a Defined Benefit Program member, there may be other service you are eligible to purchase.
