Retirement leave balances


Q. I am an ATC FERS Front Line Manager who will retire in the next couple of years with 26 years of service. Will I be paid out for accrued sick leave and annual leave?

A. You’ll receive a lump-sum payment for your annual leave. Your unused sick leave will be added to your actual service and, if there’s enough of it, used in the computation of your annuity.
