Q. I’ll soon be retiring. Will I be paid for any holidays that occur during my accrued annual leave? A. Yes. When you retire, your unused annual leave will be projected forward as if you were still on the job working eight hours a day, 40 hours a week and 80 hours a pay period.

Q. I will retire on Jan. 4, 2019. I have 230 hours of annual leave that I want to cash out. How is this done and how much will it be? There are still two more pay periods where I will accrue some leave. Is there a form to be completed?
Q. I applied for Office of Personnel Management disability retirement and I’m currently on leave without pay.

Q. What does Block 19 on my civilian leave and earnings statement mean? What does that number, which goes up on each LES, tell me? I plan to retire in three years at age 69 with just a few months less than 20 years of federal civil service. I’m an Army civilian.
Q. How would 1,134 hours of sick leave be applied to my CSRS retirement? Currently I have 46 years and 10 months of government service. I am 62 years old.

Q. I spent 13 years, 1987-2000, in the national guard, drill weekends and annual training periods. I have been working for the Department of Defense since 2006. Does any of this time count toward my retirement or leave accrual?
