Allowable Credit for Prior State Service Increased

Effective July 1, 1996, the number of years for which certain employees shall receive credit for prior state service for purposes of computing bonus annual leave has increased.

All employees of the State as of June 2, 1972, shall receive full credit for employment prior to such date. Following the date of June 2, 1972, all employees who are rehired following a break in service shall be given full credit for prior permanent service for purposes of computing bonus annual leave earnings.

Prior to July 1, 1996, employees who terminated and were rehired following a break in service were only given credit for the period of service prior to termination to a maximum of ten years. Employees may now receive credit for all prior permanent state service for bonus annual leave purposes.

If you have more than ten years prior permanent service, or prior permanent service that was not added to your service credit when you were employed, please contact Human Resources at 656-2002. We will verify the accuracy of the prior service and recalculate the service credit for bonus annual leave purposes.
