(i) As if the annuitant were age 62 and fully insured on January 1 of the year the annuity supplement commences;
(ii) Without regard to the Social Security earnings test (section 203 of the Social Security Act);
(iii) Without regard to the Social Security windfall elimination provisions (sections 215(a)(7) and 215(d)(5) of the Social Security Act); and

(iii) Only basic pay for full calendar years of service creditable under FERS is taken into account in computing the retiree's wages for a benefit computation year;
(iv) For a benefit computation year after age 21 during which the retiree did not perform a full calendar year of service creditable under FERS the retiree's wages are deemed to equal the product of—
(A) The National Average Wage Index (as determined by the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration) corresponding to that year, multiplied by
(B) A fraction—
(1) The numerator of which is the retiree's basic pay for his or her first full year of service creditable under FERS; and
