Rehires and unused leave


Q. I am a re-employed CSRS annuitant who is receiving both his full annuity and full salary. I receive and accrue annual leave and sick leave. When I retire again, for the second time, I will have accrued and unused annual leave and accrued and unused sick leave. At my retirement, will I be reimbursed for both the accrued and unused annual leave and the accrued and unused sick leave?

A. You will receive a lump-sum payment for your unused annual leave. You won’t receive any payment for your unused sick leave because it has no cash value.
