Q. I have heard that, upon retiring, there is a 24-hour limit on selling back credit hours, and one could accumulate about 448 hours of unused annual leave, if done exquisitely; and that religious comp time may not be sold back. What about travel comp time? May that be sold back? Is there a cap?
A. Compensatory time off for travel is forfeited:
* If not used by the end of the 26th pay period after the pay period during which it was earned;
* Upon voluntary transfer to another agency;
* Upon movement to a noncovered position; or
* Upon separation from the federal government.
Under no circumstances may an employee receive payment for unused compensatory time off for travel.
