Leave accrual


Q. I am medically retired from the military. I have 12.5 years of active duty from September 1991 to May 2004. I’ve worked for the Veterans Affairs Department since October 2006. I am only getting six hours for leave. Why is my service time not being used?

A. To find out if you are entitled to additional credit, go to www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/veterans-services/vet-guide and scroll to Service Credit for Leave Rate Accrual and Retirement.
