My current thinking is to buy service credit - it is a guaranteed benefit and balances our retirement income streams by increasing the pension payment.
A guarantee is only as good as the guarantor. Think about all the Detroit civil service retirees and their "guaranteed" pensions.

I would keep the money in your name.
