Bank membership requires an annual enrollment fee of four, six, or eight hours of leave (determined by years of service), which is automatically deducted during the first full pay period of every new leave year. New employees have up to 60 days from date of employment to apply.
The Leave Transfer Program is for Agency employees who are not members of the Leave Bank and are in need of leave assistance due to a personal or family medical emergency or condition, or for members who have already exhausted their Leave Bank hours and are still in need of leave. The Leave Transfer Program is based solely on donations and the hours are not guaranteed.
