Retirement date


Q. I am a CSRS employee. If I retire on Friday, Oct. 31, will I accrue my annual leave for that pay period? I will have worked the 80 hours, but technically the end of the pay period is Saturday, Nov. 1.

A. You may retire at the end of the day on Friday, Oct. 31, be on the annuity roll the following day, and get credit for the annual and sick leave you earned during that pay period.
