Are there special retirement benefits?

Are there special retirement benefits?

Yes, Border Patrol Agents who have at least 20 years of service are eligible for retirement at age 50. This special provision also applies to law enforcement officers and certain supervisory personnel who have been promoted from law enforcement positions. Retirements are mandatory at age 57 with 20 years of service; however, employees could work beyond 57 until they meet the combination of age and service requirements to retire under law enforcement provisions.
