Ok If I retire before a new contract is done will I get back pay for the last 14 months if we get a pay raise in the new contract? Cough Cough! Will they go back and figure this new rate into my retirement high 3 and what about SS will they have to redo my figures there too! Or are you just S out of luck! Kind of makes me wonder if I should hold off past July if new contract isn't done before I decide to go!
