    FED LE 6c coverage question

    Here’s a question for those with knowledge of federal LE retirement:

    A friend of mine is getting close to aging out (late 30s, with some creditable fed LE service that has ended). He put in for some DOD police jobs, and I told him I didn’t think those would “stop the clock”, but I haven’t found any definitive answer.

    I told him that the BOP would probably be his quickest path to stopping the clock, and then he could look to move to something else at his leisure. He won’t go to DC, so USSS UD is out.

    Any thoughts or recommendations I could pass along?

    Who’s Covered by Law Officer Retirement

    They won't. Most GS 0083 Police Officers are not 6c covered. Niether are CBP Officers though they have their own unique form of coverage. The job announcement on USAJOBS should specify.
