Q: You answered the question below in a previous post. Can you give me the legal statute/instruction that states this so I can let my human resources department know? They are trying to tell me that my military service won’t count toward leave accrual time and I am in almost this exact situation as below.
I am starting a general service job soon, but am getting some conflicting messages about how much leave I will accrue. I am a member of the U.S. Army Retired Reserve with about 14 years of active duty time. I will not receive military retired pay for another 12 years.
Will my active duty time be creditable for leave in the civilian system?
A: You’ll find all the information you need in OPM’s chapter on Creditable Service for Leave Accrual. Go to http://www.opm.gov/feddata/gppa/gppa06.pdf and scroll down to section 6.6.
