Final Average Compensation

Prior to September 8, 1978

The term “average salary” used for determining pension payments and retirement is the average salary including any additional pay or salary provided by the legislature over and above that set by the Police Commission, received for 1) the 12-month period ending on the last day of the month immediately preceding the date of retirement or date of death, or, 2) for any consecutive 12-month period, whichever is the greatest. For the purposes of computation, “average salary” will not include overtime, expenses, or clothing allowances.

 

On or After September 8, 1978

The term “average salary” used for determining pension payments and retirement is the average salary including any additional pay or salary provided by the legislature over and above that set by the Police Commission, received for 1) the 36-month period ending on the last day of the month immediately preceding the date of retirement or the date of death, or, 2) for any 36 consecutive months, whichever is the greatest. For the purposes of computation, “average salary” will not include overtime, expenses, or clothing allowances.

 

On or After January 1, 2011 See New State Police Plan

When determining final average compensation (FAC), State law sets a limit on the amount of increase during the 36 months that can be used in the calculation. The annual salary increase is limited to 125 percent per year for the 36-month period used to calculate the final average compensation. This limitation does not apply to you if you were employed before September 8, 1978.
