# Adjusted basic annual pay on LES not equal to hourly rate?

 0 ♥ 0 My hourly rate times 80 hours equals my gross income in block 21 on my Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), however block 7 has my adjusted basic annual pay at \$195.80 more than what my gross income times 26 is? \$26.69 X 80 = \$2135.20 X 26 weeks = \$55,515.20…however block 7 indicates base pay + locality pay is \$55,711…Why am I not getting what block 7 indicates?

 2 ✔ Private answer I know this probably won’t make sense but what can I say, this is the way it works. If you have an annual rate of pay, to determine your hourly rate, you divide by that 2087. Your high-3 is based on a 360 day year which mean none of it will match up with your LES! Here is a fact sheet with pay information: https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/pay-administration/fact-sheets/how-to-compute-rates-of-pay/ Which is exactly why they use the pay of record to determine your high-3 average salary and not any figures on your LES.
