Army Deadline for Leave Carry-Over Policy

Sept. 30 marks the deadline that Soldiers can carry up to 75 days of leave from one year to the next. As of Oct. 1, which marks the start of a new fiscal year, Soldiers can maintain up to a maximum of 60 days of leave. Sixty days was the original amount Soldiers could maintain from one year to the next before 2008, when the 75-day leave policy was implemented due to "high operations tempo." While serving in a combat zone, Soldiers can accrue up to 120 days of leave. For more information, read All Army Activities Message 022/1213.
