Save Your Sick Days!

State Employees: Unused sick leave accruals can be converted into monetary value to offset out-of-pocket health insurance premiums during retirement.

RF Employees: If you are eligible for the retiree health benefit, RF in Albany will contact the Payroll Office to find out how much sick time you have after you actually retire. They will make an additional pension contribution to TIAA by multiplying the value of your accrued sick days (to a maximum of 200 days) by the current percent they contribute for your retirement.
