Employees who initially choose not to participate in the Bank may enroll during October of subsequent years and will have a one-year waiting period before becoming eligible to submit an application for use of Bank days. However, the employee must contribute a number of days (maximum of 4 days) equal to those he/she would have contributed had he/she been a member since the initial enrollment opportunity at hiring.Membership may be cancelled during the annual October enrollment period.
