Pay and Leave
Pay and Pay Periods
You should know your annual salary by now. You will be paid via direct deposit every 2 weeks. Please see the pay period calendar for details.
In addition, visit the OPM website for information on salaries and wages.
Leave can fall under many different categories, the most common being annual leave and sick leave. Federal employees are entitled to both annual and sick leave, beginning the first day of their first federal job.
At the end of each leave year, you are allowed to carry 240 hours of annual leave over to the next leave year.
Sick leave is not subject to carry-over limitations and continues to accrue from year to year.
For more information on leave please review the fact sheets on OPM's website on the various leave programs.
