Leave accrual credit


Q. I have a civilian job offer for a GS-12 position with the Department of the Navy. This would be my first government job. They offered me a Step 3 salary plus “seven years of credit for determining leave accrual.” I understand this credit for leave accrual would put me at 20 days of paid time off per year, but does it add to any retirement benefits in FERS for “credit” of years of service?

A. No.
