Sick leave


Q: I have read all the questions about sick leave. As a CSRS employee I have over the max years for credible service to receive 80 percent of my high three. I know my 2,087 hours of sick will garner me another 2 percent added onto the 80 percent. My question is, if I have more than the 2,087 hours of sick leave will I just loose those hours.

A: There is no limit to the amount of unused sick leave for which you can receive credit when your annuity is computed.
