Q. I would like to complete the fewest law enforcement years possible to retain my law enforcement retirement. I have 13 years in. I know I have to do 25 full years in law enforcement to get out completely at any age. If I completed 20 years of law enforcement and completed the remaining time in a noncovered position until age 50, could I obtain full law enforcement retirement? Do I have to be in a covered position upon turning age 50?
A. Once you have completed 20 years of law enforcement service, you could transfer to a non-law enforcement position, retire at age 50 and have you annuity computed under the enhanced formula.
