Basic Plan with Increased-Take-Home-Pay (ITHP)
For PFRS Tier 1, 2, 5 and 6 Members, and Tier 3 Members Covered by Article 11
(Sections 370-a, 371-a & 375)
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 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, 3, 5 and 6 members may be able to receive service 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.
