WSPRS Service Credit

Service Credit and Contributions

A Washington State Patrol Retirement System (WSPRS) member earns one month of service credit for each month in which he or she earns basic salary for 70 or more hours. A WSPRS member who earns basic salary for less than 70 hours in a specific month does not earn any service credit in that month.

For any earning period, retirement contributions are due on all basic salary earned regardless of the number of hours a member works.
