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 taken under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.
Tier 2, 3, 5 and 6 members receive half credit for sick leave at half pay.
Tier 2, 3, 5 and 6 members may be able to receive credit for some or all workers’ compensation leave. To determine your eligibility and the cost, if any, please send a request to NYSLRS for review.
