Q. I worked in Saudi Arabia as an Army civil servant from 2012-2016. I now work in the U.S. at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton where I receive locality pay. If I work here for two years, how is my retirement pay under FERS (42 years of service) computed? What if I spend one year overseas (no locality pay) and two years stateside (with locality pay) — do I get the average of the three years?

Q. I am 53 years old, and I retired from the Navy Reserve in 2008 with 21 years of service (13 active). I have been a GS employee since 2002 and have made a deposit for the active-duty time toward my civilian retirement. I plan to retire from the federal government when I am 56. Will I still be eligible for a military reserve retirement?

Q. How does one calculate top three? Is that the amount you make annually for the last three years of your top salary? For example: .01 x $62,000 x 20 (with $62,000 being the average of one’s top 3).
