Q. I am a GS-1811 employee with 32 years of service, 25 under law enforcement coverage. I worked 14 of the law enforcement years part time, four days a week. Will I still be required to retire at the end of the month in which I turn 57, or will my mandatory age retirement be extended by the amount of time I worked part time?

A. You would be permitted to continue working until you reached 20 years of service, even if that extended beyond the mandatory retirement age.

    It depends on your 6c Retirement SCD. Call your HR office to determine this. You will be mandatory if you have 25 years by the time your are 57. If not, you will be mandatory as soon as you accumulate 25 years of service.
