Q: I am a GS-14 Step 6 Federal 1811. With my locality pay (New York) and availability pay, I am subject to the bi-weekly and annual pay cap. For calculation of my high-3, do they use my grade plus locality plus availability pay (as per the charts) or do they use the lower amount that I got paid due to the pay cap?
A: Your annuity will be based solely on the highest three consecutive years of average pay that you actually received, the amount from which retirement deductions were taken.
