Professional Staff Association Sick Leave Bank open enrollment

March 1, 2017 | UToday
By Staff



Open enrollment for the Professional Staff Association’s Sick Leave Bank will take place in March.

The sick leave bank is a voluntary program open to all Professional Staff Association (PSA) members on all campuses. 

Eligible employees are defined in PSA bylaws as “all non-bargaining unit employees on all campuses whether salary or hourly, classified or unclassified, full or part time, excluding those with faculty rank.” 

The bank collects one-time, voluntary donations of sick time from PSA personnel to assist PSA colleagues who may be stricken with catastrophic injury or illness. This bank bridges the gap of time between the exhaustion of their benefits from sick, personal and vacation days to when they qualify for long-term, permanent disability benefits. 

Full-time PSA members may donate 16 hours and part-time members may donate eight hours of personal sick time to the bank, which is administered by Human Resources and Talent Development. Participants donate the time only once, no matter how long they continue their employment at the University.

To enroll, log in to myUT portal between March 1 and 31. On the employee tab, click on the Professional Staff Association link. In the left-hand column under PSA Committees, click on the Sick Leave Bank Committee link. There, you will find links to the policy and forms and a link of current members.

If you are not a member but wish to become one, return the completed form to PSA Sick Leave Bank care of Deb Sobczak, chair of the Sick Leave Bank Committee, Mail Stop 608, by the March 31 deadline.
