Q. I would like to be eligible for the 1.1 multiplier. As I already have 2,700-plus hours of sick leave (more than 1 year), does this mean I could retire at 61 years of age? In other words, do years of service also include unused sick leave?

Q. Can the sick leave balance be used to push a retiring employee beyond the 20-year point? If the worker, older than 62, wants to retire on Feb. 1 but is five months short of 20 years and has 5½ months of sick leave, will the balance push the service beyond 20 years?

Q. I retired at age 64 with 41 years and nine months. I had over 2,457 hours of sick leave. I also had two years military. At the time of retirement I did not qualify for Social Security. I am now 70 1/2 and work a part-time job. I now qualify for Social Security. Due to sick leave saved I get 82 1/2 percent of my high-3. Will applying for Social Security in any way affect my annuity?

Q. After doing the conversion based on the chart, I will have 28 days of use-or-lose sick leave. If I want to take those days off while I’m still working, how many days is that in real time? I know the 28 days are not based on eight hours of leave, which is the normal work day.
