Special 20- and 25-Year Plans

For PFRS Tier 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 Members

(Sections 384, 384-d and 384-e)

Leaves of Absence

Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay; Tier 2, 3, 5 and 6 members receive half credit for sick leave at half pay.

Since service is usually not credited for any period of time you do not receive earnings, credit is not given for:

  • Leaves of absence without pay;
  • Authorized, unpaid medical leaves of absence; or
  • Unpaid leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.
Workers’ Compensation

Tier 1 members will usually receive up to one year of service credit per incident for time spent on Workers’ Compensation leave.

Tier 2, 3, 5 and 6 members may be able to receive credit for some or all of your Workers’ Compensation leave. To determine your eligibility and the cost, if any, please send a request to the Retirement System for review.
