AS 14.25.115. Unused Sick Leave Credit.

(a) A teacher in membership service on or after July 1, 1977, who is appointed to retirement on or after July 1, 1978, may elect to apply unused sick leave credit in computing the total number of years of credited service under AS 14.25.110 (d) except for sick leave earned while participating in a university retirement program under AS 14.40.661 - 14.40.799. To obtain service credit for unused sick leave, a teacher must apply to the administrator not later than one year after appointment to retirement. Unused sick leave shall be credited on a day-for-day basis in accordance with the table for service after July 1, 1969, contained in AS 14.25.220 (45). Teacher contributions may not be required for credited unused sick leave.

(b) A teacher appointed to retirement before July 1, 1978, who returns to membership service on or after July 1, 1978, and is subsequently reappointed to retirement is eligible for unused sick leave credit only with respect to sick leave accrued during membership service on or after July 1, 1978.

(c) Benefits payable under this section accrue from the first day of the month after which all the following requirements are met: (1) the teacher meets the eligibility requirements of this section; (2) the teacher's written application for unused sick leave credit is received and verified by the administrator; and (3) a period of time has elapsed since the date of appointment to retirement equal to the amount of verified unused sick leave. Benefits are payable on the last day of the month.
