Eligible members impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and unable to use vacation accruals now have until December 31, 2022, to use carried over vacation that would have been forfeited on April 1, 2020 and April 1, 2021.
Carried-over accruals from April 2020, April 2021 and April 2022 will have to be used by December 31, 2022, to avoid forfeiture. No one should have had carried-over accruals forfeited on or after January 1, 2022.
The vacation accrual cap of 40 days was increased to 50 days for one-year effective April 1, 2022 and reverts to 40 days on April 1, 2023.
Vacation credits earned on or after April 1, 2022, are not impacted by these extensions or the December 31, 2022, deadline.
If you are unsure about your balance of carried over accruals, you should request that information from your agency. If you have any questions, contact your PEF Field Representative.Read the full memo here.
