Request an Appeal

Leave Bank Appeal Process

If your Recipient Application is disapproved, or partially approved, you may request an appeal. Submit a written request to the Leave Bank Office with the reason for your appeal within 30 days of receiving your disapproval/partial approval notification.

Keep in mind that you may:

  • Not appeal a decision that was based on the Leave Bank’s available leave balance.
  • Only appeal one time per medical emergency

Please visit the Leave Bank Recipient Homepage for more information.
