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?

Q. My wife went from active duty to reservist as a military tech. She bought back all military time while serving as a tech. She was beyond the 20-year mark when she was returned to active duty, where she retired. Now she has been reinstated as civil service. Will she get the benefit of eight hours a pay period for leave purposes? She has 6-plus years under Social Security. If she does not get credit for the previous years of service, can she request a refund from the military buy-back program without affecting previous contributions to her retirement fund?
Q. If someone joins the U.S. Postal Service and has four years active duty with an honorable discharge, will he/she automatically receive four weeks of annual leave from the start, or is it necessary to buy back their military time first?
Q. What is the maximum amount of leave that I can cash-in (240hrs, 408hrs, 420hrs, 440hrs, etc.) when I retire with my federal position? The only reason I ask is my organization is stating no more than 240 hours! Does my installation have the right to dictate how much leave they are willing to pay out when I retire? If that is the case, then where is the federal bill or policy that discusses this? Is the guidance discussed in the Department of Defense appropriations bill? Bottom-line: My goal is to make sure that I have all the facts prior…

Q. I am a FERS employee who plans to retire in May. Should I choose my official retirement date as May 28 or May 31? And if one is better than the other, why is that so? I have been told two different things regarding the date. One: It has to be last day of the month because I am FERS. Two: It needs to be last day of a pay period.
