Unemployment benefits after forced retirement

Bookmark and Share

Q: As A FERS law enforcement officer, I must retire at age 57. Am I eligible to receive unemployment benefits since it is not my decision to stop working, and I am forced to stop due to age requirements?

A: Unlikely; however, the decision rests with your state unemployment office.

    You are not being forced to retire? You agreed to retire at age 57 when you entered the 1811 series. Be a man!
