Leave credit


Q. Working to Jan. 3, 2018, means an employee leaves the second Thursday of the first pay period of 2018 with 3 days (Jan. 4-6) not worked. Is a partial sick or annual leave benefit calculated and added for the worked days in the partial pay period? Also, is there an online calculator to calculate a retirees annuity and the additional days necessary to add one month using data from one’s High-3, time in service, and annual and sick-leave balances?

A. Partial credit is never given for either sick or annual leave. You have to complete a pay period to get any credit. Responding to your second question, I’m not aware of any online calculator that would allow you to get the answers you’re looking for.
