Annual leave payout


Q. I’m being retired on medical disability, and I have more than 190 hours of annual leave. Who pays me for this and approximately when?

A. Your agency is responsible for generating a lump-sum payment for any unused annual leave. Usually such payments are made at the same time as your final paycheck is issued. Check with your agency to find out what its payment schedule is.
