Browsing: High-3

Q. I am a 48-year-old FERS employee and considering resignation with almost 28 years of federal service. If I resign now (age 48), at age 60 do I submit a request to the Office of Personnel Management to collect pension high-3 (28 years of service)? If this is so, would this be considered a postponed or deferred retirement?

Q. What is determined to be my high-3? Is it based on my last three years of civil service employment prior to retirement or is it the highest three earning years during the course of my career?

Q. I keep hearing that for a Department of Defense civilian with the Army deploying to Afghanistan, danger pay is included in the high-3. I know differential and overtime are not covered. Can you shed some light on this?
