LEO and regular employment


Q. I am currently employed as a Defense Department civilian. I have approximately 16 years of federal service, with 13 years working in a law enforcement position. I am considering retiring at my Minimum Retirement Age with over 20 years of service. Since I contributed more toward my pension under the LEO system (1.3 percent versus 0.8 percent), will my FERS retirement be calculated using two different systems (LEO and regular)?

A. Yes, it will.
