Special Leave Accrual - Reserve/Guard Example 4:  Reservist takes leave, balance at end of fiscal year 60 days or less.
On 30 Sept. 2021, you have 65 days of leave, which becomes your carry-over maximum. You accrued 20 days but you also took 30 days of leave in May 2022.  On 1 June 2022, your LES shows a current balance (CR BAL) of 55.0 days, which was the minimum leave balance achieved throughout FY21. Since your leave balance dropped below 60 days, you no longer have any SLA protected leave.
  • Your June 1, 2022 LES will reflect a current balance of 55.0 days.
    • There is no longer any SLA protected leave due to the leave balance dropping below 60 days.
  • Your June 1, 2022 LES will reflect a Use/Lose balance of 5.0 days. Since your new allowable leave carryover is at 60, you will have to use 5 more days of leave before the end of the fiscal year. Below is how you should interpret your Use/Lose leave balance.
    • 5 days of your accrued leave is set to expire September 30, 2022.
