Unused leave entitlement


Compensation and Benefit Instructions (CBI) 205.74


The purpose of the unused leave entitlement is to ensure that the member's estate receives payment of the unused leave to which the member would be entitled.


When an officer or non-commissioned member of the Regular Force or of the Reserve Force on Class B or C Reserve Service dies or is presumed to have died, an amount equal to the value of the unused earned leave to which the member had an entitlement at the time of death or presumed death shall be paid to the service estate.


The calculation of Unused Earned Leave is part of the file audit process completed by Director Military Career Administration (DMCA) 4. Unused Earned Leave to which the member has an entitlement includes annual, accumulated, accrued and all other types of leave. For Regular Force members only, all unused retirement leave (if applicable) is included in the calculation of Unused Earned Leave.
