FY 2018 - DRAFT

The FY 2018 projection utilizes a data set from March 31, 2017.  The health insurance rate increased  from $888 to $913.  The model contains blended rates for OASI maximum and minimum wage as described in the footnotes.  The health insurance contribution breakout and updated Graduate health insurance rate are reflected in this version.  There was a slight increase in the  Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) rate which is a component of the most common retirement plans weighted average calculation. 

FY 2017 - FINAL

Please note the final FY 2017 version reflects a refreshed data set (October 2016) and updates for the medical aid rate, OASI maximum, minimum wage, graduate health insurance split (no change to total), and the health insurance contribution breakout.
