Q. I am a GS-1811 employee with 32 years of service, 25 under law enforcement coverage. I worked 14 of the law enforcement years part time, four days a week. Will I still be required to retire at the end of the month in which I turn 57, or will my mandatory age retirement be extended by the amount of time I worked part time?
A. You would be permitted to continue working until you reached 20 years of service, even if that extended beyond the mandatory retirement age.
