Browsing: Annual leave

Q. I’m retiring on 12/31/2018, and will have accrued 287 hours of annual leave; that is, over the 240 hours maximum. I’m not understanding whether I’m going to lose those hours unless I take the extra leave before the end of the year or if it is OK. How many hours will I actually get paid for in the lump sum?

Q. I have read conflicting views on whether the Voluntary Separation Incentives Payments (VSIPs) and annual leave payments are subject to the earnings test. Other sites report under Office of Personnel Management rules monies you earn in the year in which you retire are not subject. Does this mean if I retire in March and lump sum payment for annual leave and a VSIP is paid that year, it does not count against my supplement?

Q. I just got my earning statement for my annual-leave payout. In the remarks section, I have a line that says OVR EARN LIMIT: $5,697.00. I was a GS-15/5 with LEAP and had an annual-leave balance of 432 hours on retirement (April 30). I typically received over-earning notifications on my pay statement, so am familiar with the why. But I was under the impression that the earning limits did not apply to annual leave that was paid out on retirement. Is that true, or are annual-leave payouts on retirement subject to the same over-earning restrictions as regular pay?
