Furlough and leave accrual


Q. Will sick and annual leave accrual rates be affected by the furlough? For example, if we were furloughed two days per pay period, would we accrue only 3.2 hours of sick leave per pay period?

A. Go to www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/leave-administration/fact-sheets/effect-of-extended-leave-without-pay and click on Effect of Extended Leave  without Pay (or other Nonpay Status) on Federal Benefits and Programs.
