It was a work program.

In my husbands case he was 21 and had attended college for 3 years but needed a job.
The college he attended had one CETA position available, so he got hired for it.

While he worked the two years in question did he actually belong and contribute to the pension system. I had a similar situation. Just not for as long.

Nope. He is trying to recoup the days/months and years time, not the money. I had to recoup about 22 months from my previous employers, and then pay into the pension account at the State of AZ, to get enough credit to retire. After I paid it, they credited me with the time worked. I needed 10 years total and with the other two jobs credit, I made it. I also paid around $3000 for this. But my pension is for life.

The same is true for my husband. He'll have to pay to buy back that time also but it's worth it. His pension is for life, and my lifetime too.

I facebook messaged the head of the State Comptrollers office where those records were supposedly sent and he read my message so I'm hoping he'll have some suggestions on how to get the info I need.

ALWAYS save your W2 forms, as they may be the only tangible proof that you worked for an employer when it comes time to file for retirement.

The links provided above by others appear to be helpful for your case. My comment is only for those who may have discovered a bunch of old tax returns in their attic and are about to throw them away.

Just the other day I found a box full of tax return records. They go all the way back to 1977! Why I've held onto them is anyone's guess...just moving a box from one house to another without really going through it. The thing about them though is they really aren't all that legible anymore. Faded to almost nothing. I also have returns from the 1980s to current ones. I suppose I could/should get rid of a bunch of them and should probably shred them. That'll take a whole day! lol
