Q. I am CSRS offset and can retire later this year. I have two questions.
1) As someone who works on a regular basis on Sunday and receives Sunday premium pay, is this premium pay part of calculations for my retirement annuity?
2) I spent 10 months in Iraq as a US Corps of Engineers civilian army employee. One adviser told me that my hazardous/combat pay counts towards my high-3 for retirement purposes. Another adviser said the opposite. Which is true?
A. For CSRS-covered employees, neither of these kinds of premium pay are considered part of basic pay for annuity computation purposes.
