Mandatory retirement and further federal employment

0

Q. I am a federal firefighter under FERS. I have 25 years in position and will reach mandatory retirement age in 4.5 years. I want to stay with the federal program where I work. Is it legal for me to retire from the fire service and move to another government position here at the base where I am employed? If so, where is this in print, or under what regulation? I know in years past this was not allowed unless you came back as a contract employee.

Waiver for mandatory retirement age?

1

Q. Are there any situations and/or waivers that would allow someone under FERS to continue to work after reaching mandatory retirement age? A. CSRS and FERS law enforcement officers and firefighters are subject to mandatory retirement at age 57 if they have 20 years of service. An agency head can retain an LEO until age 60 if he finds that the employee’s continued service is in the public interest. The FBI has limited authority to raise the age to 65. While a CSRS LEO can be retained above age 60, it may only do so with the Office of Personnel…

Voluntary vs. mandatory retirement

2

Q. I am eligible for retirement March 21 as a law enforcement officer under FERS. I will have 20 years of law enforcement experience and am age 56. Because I turn 57 in October (seven months later), I will be forced to retire Oct. 31. Aside from the extra approximately $8.56 per month I will get in my annuity for each month I stay after March and the benefit of having a full salaried job for seven more months, is there any advantage to me retiring under mandatory retirement age versus voluntary? The combination of my projected annuity and special…

Q. As a federal agent with 6c coverage, do I have to achieve 20 years of service *on* the day I turn 57, or can I achieve 20 years of service *during* the year I turn 57?

Phased retirement

0

Q. Who is eligible for phased retirement under the bill that Congress passed that will allow retirement-eligible federal employees to work part time? A. The law applies to anyone who has met the age and service requirements to retire on an unreduced annuity except for law enforcement officers — including Customs and Border Protection, Capitol Police and Supreme Court officers — firefighters, nuclear materials couriers and air traffic controllers, all of whom face a mandatory retirement age. However, the decision on whether to use the new authority rests solely with the employee’s agency.

Special retirement supplement and law enforcement positions

0

Q. I have about 23 years of 6c covered law enforcement officer service and turn 50 this year. I’m trying to decide if I want to jump to a private-sector job, and part of my decision will be based on what I am expecting as my FERS pension plus the special retirement supplement we are supposed to get given our mandatory retirement age. I have heard that a recent change in federal law, possibly as part of the Affordable Care Act, eliminated (or will eliminate) this supplement, even though when I started 23 years ago, that was not the law.…

Military service, law enforcement employment and retirement

0

Q. I am going through the hiring process for a couple of federal law enforcement agencies. I am 41; however, I am a veteran’s preference eligible candidate and therefore eligible for an age waiver. As such, the agencies have advised me that hiring of eligible such candidates older than 37 has occurred and is occurring; however, no one can tell me how that affects the mandatory retirement of 57. I have 18 years of military service. roughly half active duty and half reserve time (I am a drilling reservist looking to retire out of the reserves at 20 years). What…
