State Correction Officers and Security Hospital Treatment Assistants Plan
For ERS Tier 1 and 2 Members (Section 89)
Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay; Tier 2 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 a salary, 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.
You will usually receive up to one year of service credit per incident for time spent while on Workers’ Compensation leave.
