If I leave under MRA+10, what does my sick leave balance count toward?


I am qualified to leave federal service under the MRA plus 10, birth year 1958 and 12 years of service now. I have 1048 hours of sick leave. What happens with my 1048 hours of sick leave? Does my sick leave improve my annuity amount? Does it make a difference if I wait to leave at 62? How?

If you leave at your MRA with the 12 years of service, your annuity will be increased by your 1048 hours of sick leave, which equals approximately 6 months. If you wait until you are age 62 to retire, you will have a larger annuity due to your additional service and your high-3 hopefully will be higher, and your sick leave could be more, again, due to your additional service. If you retire at your MRA+10 and take the pension immediately, it will be penalized. If you wait until age 62 to retire, or to wait draw your MRA+10 annuity, there would be no age penalty.
