Law enforcement retirement


Q. I am a CSRS employee, 53 years old, and have 29 years of coverage under 6c law enforcement pay. I have been fortunate enough to be selected for a non-6c SES position. Can you tell me how this will affect my ability to retire?

A. Because you are at least 50 years old and have at least 20 years of law enforcement-covered service, you may retire at any time. Taking a non-LEO position won’t affect that right.
