Question: If I retire on Jan. 3, 2020 (end of pay period one), and I have in excess of 240 hours of annual leave, do I lose the amount accrued over the 240 hours?
Answer: For leave year 2019, the official end of the leave 2019 is Saturday, January 4, 2020. Therefore, by retiring on Friday, Jan. 3, 2020, you are retiring before the end of the leave year and you will get paid for all of your unused annual leave hours including the annual leave hours you accrued exceeding 240 hours.
