New York State employees may use this calculator to help estimate potential sick leave credit value in preparation for retirement.
The sick leave credit is the actuarial value of your unused sick leave calculated at the time you retire, applied as a lifetime monthly credit to reduce the cost of your NYSHIP (New York State Health Insurance Program) retiree premium. You must qualify for NYSHIP retiree health insurance at the time of your separation from the University to be eligible for this benefit.
The calculated estimate is provided for informational purposes only and amounts provided are not guaranteed. Your sick leave credits are not finalized until you have retired and all outstanding timesheets are approved and audited. The information provided is based on the information you enter. Any incorrect information entered will result in an inaccurate credit estimate.
Use of the calculator does not guarantee or confirm eligibility for retirement from the University at Buffalo and NYSHIP retiree health insurance benefits.
