Annual leave payout, VSIP and special retirement supplement


Q. Would the receipt of lump-sum leave payment (estimated $17,000) and a Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment (estimated $25,000) count against the earnings test to receive the special retirement supplement? If so, I assume that would effectively eliminate the supplement in the first years.

A. Neither the annual leave lump-sum payment nor the VSIP will have any effect on your special retirement supplement.
