High-3 and temporary promotion

Bookmark and Share

Q. I am eligible for CSRS retirement with 39+ years of service. I just completed a temporary promotion to manager for five months and some days. Will that pay increase be considered in my high-3 for retirement?

A. Yes. A high-3 is based on the average of the three highest consecutive years (78 pay periods) of basic pay.
