Vacation Accruals for Return-to-Work Retirees

Vacation leave accruals for return-to-work retirees are based on retirement and rehire dates. The table below provides examples of the different vacation leave accruals for return-to-work retirees who retired under the Teachers Retirement System of Texas or the Employees Retirement System of Texas on June 1, 2005, or later:
