Proactively manage excess annual leave balances

State Personnel System (SPS) agency employees are expected to manage and use their excess annual leave balance to ensure you don’t lose it.  For agencies, boards and commissions under the State Personnel System, the maximum number of annual leave hours an employee may carry over into a new calendar year is 320 hours for uncovered employees and 240 hours for covered employees.  Any hours in excess of the maximum carryover limits are subject to forfeiture. 

It is important that employees closely manage their annual leave balances through the remainder of the year and schedule leave with their supervisor so that impacts on end of year coverage will be minimal and carryover exception requests are significantly reduced.  There should not be any expectation that unused excess leave will be approved for carryover, even if it has been approved in the past. 

Employees and managers can monitor annual leave balances by logging in to YES and clicking on Leave Activity.

Fiscal Year '23 Contribution Rates

On July 1, 2022, the total contribution rate of the ASRS Retirement Pension and Health Insurance Benefit for both the employer and the employee will decrease from 12.22% to 12.03% for fiscal year 2023. Likewise, the Long Term Disability Income Plan will decrease from .19% to .14% for both the employer and the employee for fiscal year 2023. Contribution rates are actuarially determined and adjusted annually to ensure the plan remains fiscally sound and able to meet current and future obligations. For more information, visit ASRS's website at

Remote Work Agreement - Annual Renewals

Please be aware that beginning in late April 2022, employees who are participating in the State’s Remote Work Program will begin receiving a system email notification informing them of their annual Remote Work Agreement (RWA) renewal.  When you receive this notification, please log-in to Y.E.S. to renew before the current agreement expires to save time having to re-enter information and avoid potential for error.  Each employee with a current RWA will receive the annual notification 14 days before their RWA expires.

For assistance, please consult the recently revised Remote Work Agreement Guide, featuring a section that will assist employees with completing the renewal process.  Or if you have technical difficulties, please contact the HRIS Service Desk.  

Further information about the Remote Work Program and Agreement can be found on the Arizona’s Connected Workforce website at Remote Work Agreement.

W-2 Consent

W-2s are scheduled to be posted online in early January.  If you want to receive your W-2 electronically, please ensure you have consented.   

Receiving your W-2 electronically provides security protections to you and gives you access to your W-2 in early January, as opposed to late January.

Instructions to consent can be found here.
