CERTIFICATION of UNUSED STATE SICK and/or PERSONAL LEAVE

The certification below must be completed by the TRS-reporting official at the school district where
you are currently employed.
An eligible member of the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) may establish one year of equivalent membership
service credit for 50 or more days or 400 or more hours of unused state sick and/or personal leave. No more
than 5 days per year may be accumulated toward this requirement; therefore, a member must have at least
10 years of active TRS membership credit for service actually rendered in Texas public schools. This service
may only be purchased at the time a member retires. Payment in full must be received by TRS no later than
the member's effective date of retirement or the last day of the month in which the member's retirement
application is filed, whichever is later. In either case, however, payment must be received within the plan year
in which the member retires.
Credit for unused state sick and/or personal leave may be established by depositing with the System the
actuarial present value, at the time of deposit, of the additional standard retirement annuity benefits that would
be attributable to the conversion of the unused leave into service credit based on rates and tables adopted by the
Board of Trustees of the System.
This certification form will not be accepted at TRS more than 30 days prior to the effective date of your
retirement. If you purchase this service credit and subsequently revoke your retirement, your payment will be
refunded to you and the service credit will be removed from your record.
Number of days or hours of accrued unused state* sick and/or personal leave:
