Retirees Returning to Fed Agencies Would Not Lose Income Under Legislation

cash2First off, the mandatory retirement age of 57 for agencies like the FBI is silly. A 57 year old today is surely capable of carrying on duties and contributing to an agency.

WASHINGTON — Before James J. Cameron Jr. retired after 34 years with the federal government, he served as a law enforcement officer with Customs, the Border Patrol and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Now he’d like to serve his country again. But he doesn’t want to lose money doing it.

Like other retired federal employees, Cameron, 67, faces a quandary when thinking about hitching up for another ride with Uncle Sam. If they go back to government work, their salaries would be cut by the amount of their pension.

“I would not consider taking part-time work if I had to have a reduced annuity,” said Cameron, who now lives in New Portland, Maine, after postings in eight cities around the country.
