Q. I was a federal law enforcement officer who retired on disability. When I turn 62 years old, will my disability retirement years be computed using the enhanced formula for LEO?
Q. I have been trying to get a straight answer for years on a matter. I spent 11 months as a U.S. Probation Officer, which comes under federal law enforcement officer retirement, and then moved to the FBI as a Special Agent. I was told early in my career that the first position as U.S. Probation Officer did not count toward LEO retirement because I had a two month break in service. Later I was told it did count. Does it count?
Q. I was part of a reduction in force and made to retire from the military under 20 years. How does it affect my service computation date (SCD) when I get a federal law enforcement officer job? Does that time (let’s say 15 years of service) count for my SCD for annual leave accrual?
Q. I’m planning to retire in October 2019. I will be 58 years old with 30 years of FERS (including 11 years as a law enforcement officer), and eight and a half years of military service (I bought back my time). Will I incur penalties for retiring before 60? Am I eligible for the OPM supplemental Social Security benefit?
Q. I have two questions: The first is about the special retirement supplement and law enforcement officers. Is it true that the earning limitation doesn’t start until LEOs reach their minimum retirement age? My second question: Can an LEO pay deposits and re-deposits, or buy back or waive military service to be creditable in an LEO computation for retirement? Or does the actual 20 years have to be worked?
Q. I am currently a LEO under 6c retirement in FERS. I can retire in two years. I am also retired from the military, and receiving my monthly pension. When I retire from the government, I will be getting a Social Security supplement since we are mandated to retire at 57 years old. I was told by a co-worker that my Social Security supplement will be reduced since I am receiving a military pension. Is this true?
