For ERS Tier 1 Members

(Sections 75-f and 75-g)

Leaves of Absence

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.

Tier 1 members receive full credit for sick leave at half pay.

Workers’ Compensation

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