When can sick leave be credited?


Q: Let’s say I have six months of sick leave credit. Can I retire at age 61 1/2, and qualify for the multiplier of 1.1 that we get at age 62?

A: No, you can’t. Sick leave may only be added after you have met the age and service requirements for a retirement benefit.
