The U.S. Navy has implemented a Department of Defense (DoD) policy allowing Reservists to carry over leave earned during an active duty period to a later active duty period. Reserve Sailors may now earn and carry over up to 60 days of accrued leave. Additionally, all servicemembers may carry over up to 75 days if the leave was accrued between Oct. 1, 2008 and Sept. 30, 2013. If serving in a combat tax exclusion zone, active duty and Reserve Sailors may be eligible to carry over up to 120 days of accrued leave. The new leave carry-over changes are being updated to reflect the current MILPERSMAN articles that apply (1050-060, 1050-070 and 7220-340). For more information, contact your servicing Personnel Support Detachment (PSD).
