Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

Are individuals subject to mandatory retirement eligible to elect Phased Retirement?

The law provides that employees subject to mandatory retirement (including Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, Nuclear Materials Couriers, Air Traffic Controllers, Customs and Border Protection Officers, or members of the Capitol Police or Supreme Court Police) may not participate.  However, “grandfathered” Customs and Border Protection Officers who are not subject to mandatory retirement may participate.
