Unused sick leave


Q. I’m retiring with 4 months of sick leave, bringing my total time in FERS to 32 years, 1 month at age 65. I feel I really didn’t accomplish much as far as increasing final annuity and I would have been better off to have used the time up and would have been ahead of the game. Correct?

A. Since “burning off” unused sick leave would be a violation of law and regulation, your question is moot.
