Timely Comp Time Payouts Increase Accuracy

Aug 15, 2023, 08:58 AM by MOSERS

Payments of unused compensatory leave time, or comp time payouts, to benefit-eligible employees made before or after an employee’s termination, are included in retirement-eligible pay and are eligible for salary credit provided contributions are remitted to MOSERS for the payment.

Comp time payouts may impact the calculation of an employee’s pension benefit. This is why paying out unused comp time before or with an employee’s final paycheck is beneficial. A delayed comp time payout could result in an incorrect benefit estimate or pension check and could require MOSERS to recalculate a retiree’s pension.
