So I have a question for you fine people. I EAS on 25Feb2013. My question is in regards to the pro's to con's of selling leave days back vice taking terminal. I have spoken to several folks on base regarding this and quite frankly everyones retarded especially the career planner and IPAC. The points I'm considering are...
  • My number of leave days- 67.5 currently
  • If it's worth it to take terminal in time to make the spring semester at an accredited junior college
  • How much I will make if I sell it back on single e-4 pay
  • I can only sell 60 days back correct?
I tried to do a search on here for a questions forum regarding this subject but came back with nothing. This is a large database of people with experience in this so if anyone can give me any resources, or insight towards the subject I would appreciate it!
If I'm not mistaken, you continue to get BAH and all the other various allowances while on terminal leave. But selling leave back, you won't. That a hefty amount of money depending on the amount of your allowances. Of course it is all a moot point if you reside in the dorms/barraks though. I'm also AF though, so I'm not sure if there is any difference between services.
