Leave accrual


Q: I recently retired from AD USAF after 20 years, and immediately was hired as a WG-2 on base. I read the rules for leave accrual rates, but I am unsure if I meet the first condition (retired from service during a Congressional declared war) or not as I served during the Gulf War(s) and the conflict in Afghanistan. I receive four hours per pay period. Do I qualify and for how much time?

A: To find an answer to your question, go to www.opm.gov/staffingportal/vetguide.asp and scroll down to Service Credit for Leave Accrual and Retirement.
