“Soon after starting work at NIH, my personal life got very complicated. My father’s health deteriorated and I applied to use the Leave Bank so I could be his caregiver. It was a huge weight off my shoulders to know that my income was protected while I focused on being there for my father when he needed me most. My father died 10 months after I started working at NIH, and because of the Leave Bank, I was able to take care of him around the clock while he was in hospice care at my home. I am so grateful to have had that time with my dad, without the stress of wondering how I would make ends meet” - Leave Bank Recipient

Helping others...Helping You!
The NIH Leave Bank is a leave sharing program that acts like an insurance policy for your paycheck!
So how exactly does it work? Federal employees donate their annual leave to a pooled fund – anyone can donate! Then, as a member of the Leave Bank, you can draw leave out to cover time out of the office if you or a family member experience a medical condition.
Interested in becoming a member? You can join during the annual open enrollment, which runs from mid-November to mid-December. If you’re a new hire, you have 60 days to enroll when you first come onboard.
