NIH Voluntary Leave Bank Program (Leave Bank)

Helping Others…Helping You!

The Voluntary Leave Bank Program (Leave Bank) is a leave transfer program, similar to the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program (VLTP) – see comparisons. The leave bank is a pooled fund of annual and restored annual leave.  Contributors donate leave to the bank and Recipients draw leave out of the Leave Bank.

Medical conditions can happen at any time, without any notice, and can require hundreds of hours of leave. The NIH Leave Bank offers income protection to eligible NIH Leave Bank members who are affected by a personal or family medical emergency or condition.
