Retirement Benefits

FERS employees may not receive any credit for their unused sick leave.
FERS employees eligible for a CSRS component to their annuities may do so, to the extent that the time is attributable to their CSRS service. The amount creditable is the amount of unused sick leave accumulated while under CSRS or the amount creditable at retirement, whichever is lower. The sick leave may not be used to meet the minimum length of service requirements to retire.
