Q. I am currently a LEO under 6c retirement in FERS. I can retire in two years. I am also retired from the military, and receiving my monthly pension. When I retire from the government, I will be getting a Social Security supplement since we are mandated to retire at 57 years old. I was told by a co-worker that my Social Security supplement will be reduced since I am receiving a military pension. Is this true? 

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?

Q. I currently have 23 years of law enforcement experience and just reached 50 years old, so I am eligible to retire. If I accept a TERM position with the FDIC, can I still retire at any time, or do I need to reach MRA for my age group? If I keep the law enforcement retirement, who handles the retirement when I do decide to go? How will the FDIC time count toward my retirement calculations?

Q. I am 44-years-old and just transferred to the Federal Bureau of Prisons from the VA. I have eight years of civil service and 13 years of Active duty in the Army under my belt. Does my active duty time, when bought back, count toward the 20-25 year law enforcement officers retirement?
