Service Purchase

You may be able to increase your retirement benefit and possibly retire earlier by purchasing service credit for your past public service. If your service is eligible, you can purchase service credit with a lump-sum payment or by payroll deduction. Only active, contributing members may purchase service credit. Learn more.

State and Federal Income Taxes

In general, Retirement System benefits, including the $4,000 retiree death benefit, are subject to federal income tax, but no Kansas state income tax. This is because you already paid state taxes on your contributions while you were working. If you move to another state, check if your retirement benefit is taxable in that state. Learn more about taxes.
