`Tis the season: Review your PTO now
Under Advocate Health Care's paid time off (PTO) program, if your PTO bank is in excess of the maximum annual accrual allowed, those additional hours are eliminated or "lopped off" during pay period #1 of the next year.
The lop-off of hours will work like this:
PTO balance as of pay period #26 (includes PTO taken and accrual)
Minus PTO taken in pay period #1 (between12/27/2015 & 01/9/2016
Balance subject to the maximum carryover (lop off)
After the lop-off occurs, PTO accrued during that pay period will be applied to your PTO balance. We believe this creates the best opportunity for you to maximize any accrued PTO benefit before the annual lop off. You can learn more about your PTO Benefits and the PTO lop off here.
