Time off and leaves of absence

What you need to know

Taking time off — away from your job — is vital to being at your best. We support this by offering ample time off for all kinds of situations.

Paid time off (PTO)

PayPal values your wellness and wants you to take care of yourself and others in a way that best addresses your needs. Our paid time off (PTO) policy provides the flexibility to use your time for whatever recharges you.

You start earning PTO on your first day of employment:

  • First day to the end of your first calendar year—15 days, prorated according to number of days with the company
  • Each additional calendar year—1 additional day per year, up to a maximum of 20 days

Leaves of absence

Bereavement leave
