    pay - noun acting like a verb

    Dear teachers,

    Are these correct?

    If I wanted to lower the monthly pay to $84 I would need to be subject to a deductible of $10,000.00 and have to remove prescription drugs benefits

    Thank you

    No, that should be "payment."

    It's possible in some circles, "pay" is used as jargon for "payment."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
