I am happy to confirm to the Deputy that it has been determined that the period of service to which this person refers and for which verification has been submitted, can be made pensionable and will be taken into account when determining this person's pension entitlements and that the cost of purchasing this service can be determined at retirement date. I am happy to advise the Deputy that a letter to confirm same has issued from the Pension Unit to the person concerned.
