Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A government employee can put in their resignation while out on annual leave. The annual leave would be allowed to continue and you can resign effective the 20th of October. You do not have to actually come back to work to put in your notice of resignation. You can complete your furlough and put in the notice you are resigning now and still come back to work to finish up.
