Annual Leave Exchange Program
As a matter of general interest, career employees are eligible to participate in the Annual Leave Exchange Program to receive a lump sum payment in exchange for a portion of your annual leave.
Career employees who have an annual leave balance of at least 440 hours of annual leave at the end of 2019 leave year and have used less than 75 hours of sick leave during 2019 leave year. You must have a minimum accumulated annual leave balance of 440 hours at the close of business on January 3, 2020.
Career employees are allowed to sell-back a minimum of 8 hours and up to a maximum of forty (40) hours of annual leave in whole hour increments.
Employees who meet the eligibility requirement and want to exercise this option must use PostalEASE by December 9, 2019. Employees who are unable to use PostalEASE to complete their elections should contact the HR Shared Service Center at 1-877-477-3273.
Employees who are deaf or hard of hearing should call the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339 to contact the HR Shared Service Center.
