Q. The Customs and Border Protection primary officer retirement formula is 1 percent until July 2008 and 1.7 percent after that. Do CBP officers (GS-1895) receive 1.1 percent for the non-modified law enforcement officer time if retiring at age 62 with 20 years of service? It appears that the Office of Personnel Management is not giving CBP officers the 1.1 percent for age 62 with 20 years of service. If not, why not?
A. OPM doesn’t use the higher multiplier because it would be against the law to do so.
