Q. In February 2014, I will have 33 years of government service. If I receive a step increase in February 2014 and retire in March 2014, will the step increase be factored into my high-3?

A. Assuming that it is part of your highest three consecutive years of average pay, it will be included in the 78 pay periods used to calculate your high-3.
