LEO retirement


Q. I am a CBP officer; I joined in 1989 at 28 years old. Prior to this I was in the Air Force for 8 years, 5 months. I am under the FERS retirement program. In 2008 my position became a covered LEO position. I plan to retire in 2019. But since I have bought back my military time, could I retire at MRA and collect my full annuity and the OPM supplement as an LEO?

A. Active-duty service for which you’ve made a deposit cannot be used to meet the service requirements to retire as an LEO, nor can it be included when determining the amount of the special retirement supplement.
