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 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?
