“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 transfer program. It’s a pooled fund of annual and restored annual leave. Contributors donate leave to the bank and recipients draw leave out to cover time out of office due to a personal of family medical condition. It works like an insurance policy for your paycheck!
NIH employees must enroll as a Leave Bank member to receive leave from the bank. New employees have 60 days from their enter-on-duty date to enroll as a Leave Bank member for the current leave year using the Integrated Time and Attendance System (ITAS). Existing employees can enroll during the Leave Bank’s annual open enrollment, which runs from mid-November to mid-December.
