Q. In January 2010, I retired (CSRS) with 35 years of service. In July 2010, I returned to my former agency as a dual-waiver re-employed annuitant. Since that time, I have earned and not used 120 hours of annual leave. At the end of my three years (3,120 hours worked), will I receive a lump-sum payment for these hours, or are they forfeited because payment for these hours would exceed the 3,120-hour limitation?
A. You’ll receive a lump-sum payment for all of your unused annual leave.
