SUBJECT: Transfer Service Records (DSS 2482) - Employers Leaving Regional Pay System


1.1 The purpose of this directive is to clarify the administrative policy regarding the use and preparation of Transfer Service Records (DSS 2482) when an employer leaves the Government Services Canada (GSC) Regional Pay System.


2.1 This directive should be read in conjunction with Services Pay Directive 1993-030(16) dated July 8, 1993.

2.2 There has been some confusion regarding the application of this directive. Some employers have inquired about ordering the DSS 2482 in spite of the fact that this form does not apply to them.


3.1 The content of these directives applies to employers which have left (or who will be leaving) the GSC Regional Pay System.

3.2 Therefore, at this time, these instructions apply to the Royal Canadian Mint, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Canadian Museum of Nature, the National Gallery of Canada and the National Museum of Science and Technology.

3.3 A Transfer Service Record, DSS 2482, should be prepared for employees who have not reached the lock-in threshold, i.e. not 45 years of age with at least 10 years of pensionable service or who have not terminated employment. (A DSS 2000 is to be prepared for employees upon reaching the lock-in threshold, or upon termination of employment if this occurs first.) Therefore, either a DSS 2000 or a DSS 2482 is to be prepared for each employee according to these instructions .

3.4 However, in cases where the employer has already completed and submitted a DSS 2000 for an employee, a DSS 2482 need not be completed and submitted to the paying office.


4.1 Employers leaving the Regional Pay System are responsible for completing one copy of the Transfer Service Record (DSS 2482) when it is required for an employee. Once completed, it should be forwarded to the paying office for certification.

4.2 After the paying office has certified the Transfer Service Record, they should forward it to the Superannuation Branch. The Superannuation Branch will then file the document for future reference.

4.3 Ordering instructions for the DSS 2482 are contained in Forms Advice FA/1993-4 dated September 8, 1993.


5.1 Any inquiries on the foregoing may be directed to Judy Thorne at 819-956-2064, or Adèle Gervais at 819-956-2096 of the Advisory Services Division.
