Q. I have been employed as a rehired annuitant under FERS for more than three years and will retire again. While re-employed, I received both my annuity and the salary of my new position. What is the procedure in reference to my annual leave? Will I be given a lump-sum payment for it? And as far as sick leave, will my hours incurred be added to my time as an annuitant.
A. While you will receive a lump-sum payment for your annual leave, you won’t get credit for unused sick leave, nor will you be eligible for a supplemental annuity. No one hired into a position where he receives both his annuity and the full salary of his position receives retirement credit.
