How would my retirement be calculated with both part-time and full-time work

What would be my calculation if I worked 17 years of full-time and 3 years of part-time (20 hours per week) at age 62 for federal service under FERS?

Private answer

If your creditable service is 20 or more years and you are age 62 or older at retirement, your annuity will be calculated at the rate 1.1% x high-3 x 20. However, since you have three years of part time service, you will not collect the full 22% because a proration factor must be applied. Without knowing exactly how many hours you worked each pay period, ROUGHLY, your proration factor would be .925%. Example: 1.1% x 20 years of service x $50,000 high-3 = $11,000. $11,000 represents the annuity of a fulltime person working 20 years and retiring at age 62. Since you had 3 years of part time service, you then multiply the $11,000 x .925% to produce your annual unreduced pension of $10,175.
