LWOP vs. annual and sick leave


Q. I’m a carrier for the Postal Service. Due to recent health issues, I have had to use a lot of leave without pay. How many hours of annual leave do I lose for using LWOP?

A. To find out the effect on annual and sick leave of being on leave without pay, go to www.opm.gov/oca/leave/html/LWOP_eff.asp and scroll down to “Accrual of annual and sick leave.”
