Sick Leave Bank


  • The purpose of the Sick Leave Bank is to provide sick leave to contributors to the bank after the member’s accumulative sick leave has been exhausted – more specifically to provide such leave from the bank in cases of personal illnesses.
  • Sick Leave Bank benefits may not be used to postpone retirement.
  • Sick leave covered by the bank is for catastrophic illness, injury, pregnancy, or quarantine that makes an employee unable to perform the duties of his/her/their position. The bank may be used for maternity and maternity-related illnesses. The bank may not be used for illness or disabilities related to the contributor’s family.
  • To receive benefits a claim must be filed by the employee. To file a claim, call the TABCO office and request a claim form.
  • Claim forms are reviewed by a three-member approval committee, consisting of members selected by the Association.
  • Benefit to members of TABCO vs. nonmembers: Should a second opinion medical review be necessary, TABCO may assume out-of-pocket expenses for Association members. Nonmembers and will assume 100% of the costs.
  • One year maximum Sick Leave Bank benefit during career with BCPS.
