Unused sick leave


Q. I plan to retire after 20 years of service at age 64 in 2015. I understand that I will be paid for unused annual leave. Will I be paid for unused sick leave?

A. No, you won’t. Instead, those unused hours of sick leave will be added to your actual service and used in the computation of your annuity.
