Sheriffs, Undersheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Special Plan
For ERS Tier 1 and 2 Members (Article 14B: Sections 551, 552 and 553)
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.
Tier 1 members will usually receive up to one year of service credit per accident for time spent on Workers’ Compensation leave. Tier 2 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.
