Q. If you end up with 12½ months of sick leave, and 20 years and six-and-a-half months of service, would your retirement be based on 21 years, seven months, or would you lose the half month of sick leave and half month of service, and therefore use 21 years and six months to compute your retirement?
A. Your basic annuity will be determined by your years and full months of service. So, to use your example, you’d get credit for a combination of your actual service and unused sick leave. Hours that don’t add up to a full month will be dropped.
