Sick leave and TSP


Q: Will civil service employees who have accumulated sick leave be able to roll this into their Thrift Savings Plan? If so, is there a limit?

A: No you can’t. Unused sick leave has no cash value. It can only be added to your actual service and used in the computation of your annuity.
