CSRS max percentage and accrued annual leave


Q. Am I correct that you can “add” accrued annual leave in the calculation of CSRS retirement percentages, even if the accrued and unused leave at retirement would increase your retirement percentage more than 80 percent?

A. Yes. The 80 percent limit applies only to the earned annuity benefit, the one based on your years and full months of creditable service.
