1983—Pub. L. 98–94, § 922(a)(8), inserted “The amount recomputed, if not a multiple of $1, shall be rounded to the next lower multiple of $1.”
Pub. L. 98–94, § 923(a)(1), (2)(G), in footnote 2 of table, substituted “Before applying percentage factor, credit each full month of service that is in addition to the number of full years of service creditable to the member as one-twelfth of a year and disregard any remaining fractional part of a month” for “Before applying percentage factor, credit a part of a year that is six months or more as a whole year, and disregard a part of a year that is less than six months”.
1982—Pub. L. 97–295added formula B, applicable to warrant officers.
