Furloughs and remaining sick leave

Bookmark and Share

Q. I will be retiring Aug. 3 with 33 years and 11 months of CSRS employment. I have four months of sick leave plus a few days. My service computation date is Sept. 4, so I know I have to leave additional sick leave days to make a full month. I will be furloughed every Friday the last month I work (four furlough days). Will the remaining sick leave days be needed to replace furlough days in retirement calculations? Or are furlough days considered workdays (without pay) in retirement calculations?

A. They are considered workdays without pay.
