Q. I am a dentist starting with the Federal Bureau of Prisons at age 43 with an age exemption. I have approximately 10 years of military years to buy back. If the mandatory retirement age of the BOP is 57, how can I retire from an agency in 20 years at age 63, add my military 10 years for a total of 30 years, and still receive the law enforcement 1.7 percent retirement calculation?

Q. I have been trying to get a straight answer for years on a matter. I spent 11 months as a U.S. Probation Officer, which comes under federal law enforcement officer retirement, and then moved to the FBI as a Special Agent. I was told early in my career that the first position as U.S. Probation Officer did not count toward LEO retirement because I had a two month break in service. Later I was told it did count. Does it count?
