Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

How do we compute a retention incentive amount for an employee who is receiving a retained rate?

Because a retained rate is not basic pay for the purpose of computing a retention incentive, the maximum rate of basic pay for the employee’s grade must be used in place of the retained rate to calculate the retention incentive. (See 5 CFR 536.307.)
