Your Sick Leave Bank

  • Sick Leave Bank is DPS' version of Short Term Disability coverage. Learn more at

    All benefits-eligible DPS employees working 20 hours or more (.50 FTE) who accrue sick time are automatically enrolled and eligible for up to 40 days (320 hours) of Sick Leave Bank prorated by their FTE. The purpose of the Sick Leave Bank is to provide additional sick leave days (upon approval) to employees who are on an extended personal illness leave, have used all of their available time off balances (sick and vacation time) and would otherwise be on an unpaid leave status. 

    Similar Sick Leave Banks at other organizations in the Denver-Metro area require employees to wait up to 90 days for their benefit to kick in. At DPS, Sick Leave Bank is available right away with supervisor approval. Don't miss out on this important benefit! 

    Please reference the Sick Leave Bank Guidelines and Procedures for more details.
