No. Your years of service is calculated by month. So if I were to retire next week I would have 18 years 10 months or about 37.7% times my high five. the 31 Dec thing is a good deal that expires soon from our last contract, it allowed pilots who committed a year out to get up to 50 cents on the dollar of their sick bank paid out if they jump through enough hoops.
