BRAC leave


Q. When is BRAC restored leave paid out?

A. It will be included in the lump-sum payment of your annual leave when you’re separated, or it can be used with other annual leave to keep you on the rolls past your scheduled separation date in order to qualify for retirement or Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) coverage. If you move to a non-DoD federal agency, or to a DoD installation that is not being closed or realigned, the restored leave is paid in a lump sum.
