Sick leave and annuity computation


Q. I plan on retiring June 28. I have a service computation date of Sept. 14, 1978. I will have 795 hours of sick leave. Are my calculations correct that I will have 35 years and two months for retirement?

A. To confirm how much service time you’ll have for annuity computation purposes, go to and scroll to Section 50A3.1-4.
