Leave and earnings statement


Q. I applied for Office of Personnel Management disability retirement and I’m currently on leave without pay. Back in April (around the time OPM received my DR application), I noticed the amount in Block 19 dropped from around $8,400 to around $60. Is this somehow related to my DR application, and should I be concerned?

A. Yes, it is related to your DR application. Your LES was suspended on the date you went on LWOP. The lower figure represents the amount accumulated during that final pay period.
