Sick Leave Conversion


Information needed to convert sick leave hours:

  1. Total hours of sick leave have accrued (unused sick leave): found on earning/leave statement

  2. Number of years of service with the state

  3. Highest basic hourly wage received while employed by the state

 

 

Faculty and Academic Staff (9-month pay)

  1. Review leave statement for total number of sick leave hours accrued.

  2. Determine supplemental conversion credits based on your years of service. Note: You are not eligible for more supplemental hours than you have accrued.

  3. Add supplemental credits to total unused sick leave hours you have.

  4. Divide base salary (only) by 9 to get monthly amount. Divide monthly amount by 174 to get hourly amount.

  5. Multiply hourly amount by the total number of sick hours.


Example:

Total unused sick hours: 1600

Years of UW System service: 20 years       

Supplemental credits: 1040 (general with 20 years)

Highest base salary: $43,000                      

Base hourly salary: $27.459 ($43,000 / 9 / 174)

Total monies for health insurance: $27.459 x 2640 sick hours (1600 + 1040) = $72,491.76
