Change to leave carryover amount

KIRTLAND AFB, N.M. -- A recent change has been made to Section 504 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Previously, the act stated all active-duty, reserve and guard members could carry up to 75 days of leave forward to Oct. 1, 2013. As of Sept. 30, 2013, any leave in excess of 60 days will be lost on Oct. 1, 2013 unless part of the balance is special leave accrued.

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense indicates it is pursuing a statutory extension to the maximum leave carryover, but it has not yet been passed. Leave and Earning Statements will not reflect the new carryover for several months.

For more information about special leave accrued under AFI 36-3003, Military Leave Program, call the 377th Force Support Squadron Personnel point of contact, 1st Lt. Amy McInteer, at 846-5518.
