  • Sick Leave for Reemployed Retirees

    Oct 13, 2022, 7:47 AM By MOSERS

    A retiree reemployed in a benefit-eligible position after observing the termination and reemployment rules cannot receive additional retirement credit for pre-retirement unused sick leave, including any remaining hours that did not convert to whole months of service credit at retirement. When an employee retires, it is important to “zero out” unused sick leave balances in your payroll system.  For SAM II employers, MOSERS sends a monthly report of recent retirees to confirm the removal of sick leave balances in SAM II.

  • Transferring Sick Leave

    Oct 13, 2021, 8:25 AM By MOSERS

    Sick leave hours accrued by an employee at a MOSERS covered college or university may be transferred to a state agency or vice versa.

    To verify a member’s transferred sick leave from a state agency to a MOSERS covered college or university position, you will need to do the following:

    • The HR representative from the college or university will need to contact the SAM II HR representative from the employee’s previous state agency employer.
    • For agencies that do not report sick leave in SAM II, unused sick leave should be reported in hours only (not days). If the employee has no sick leave, please enter “0.” Do not leave blank.

    For retirement purposes, employees may receive service credit for unused sick leave as reported by the last employer only.
