While each federal agency will decide which employees are eligible to work under the new phased retirement regulations finally published last week, certain employees already are not permitted to enter the program, Government Executive notes.
Under the new regulations, among those already exempted from the program are law enforcement officers, firefighters and air traffic controllers; nuclear materials couriers; members of the Capitol Police and Supreme Court Police; and certain Customs and Border Protection officers.
Moreover, the program covers only those employees who are enrolled in the Civil Service Retirement System and the Federal Employees Retirement System, the report notes.
