    With BOP, you'll get the special LE FERS and you'll get 34% at 20 years and can retire at 50 with 20 or any age with 25. Much more opportunity to move up with the BOP especially if you are willing to move.

    BOP wins for pay, retirement and opportunity to advance.
    How does the 34% work? Is it 34% of your highest salary earned?

    Average of your high 3 base pay.

    I believe that includes your locality pay... which is why a lot of people do their last few years in a high paying area.

    Looks like I will have to take the DON Police Officer job now. They rescinded my conditional offer due to the freeze.

    The hiring freeze can't go on too long. The BOP has mandated staffing levels and a whole slew of people eligible to retire now and later this year. I would be shocked if this went on for more than 3 more months.
