Federal employees who will retire in January 2012 must request their annual leave no later than Nov. 19 — or they forfeit their leave.
"It is extremely important that Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and CSRS Offset employees who plan to retire on January 1, 2, or 3, of 2012, schedule their 'use or lose' annual leave to avoid forfeiture," according to a memo from Angela Bailey, associate director of Employee Services at the Office of Personnel Management.
"If the annual leave is forfeited and does not meet the requirements for restoration, it will not be included in the employee's lump-sum payment for annual leave," Bailey said in the memo.
There are a few exceptions to forfeiting your annual leave, such as an administrative error, sickness or a need for the employee to be at work. (See details here.)
