Effective Sept. 30, military members will no longer be able to carry more than 60 days of leave into the next fiscal year. Unless they are approved for special leave accrual, regular Air Force and Active Guard Reserve, or AGR, members who have more than 60 days of leave must use it or lose it by Oct. 1, 2015. Members who have approved special leave accrual (SLA) are exempted from the use-or-lose rule. SLA approval is for members who couldn't use their leave because of national emergency, crisis, catastrophe or national security situations.
