  • age limit

    I was wondering about the age limit of 37. I am 37 but I was a Border Patrol Agent in 1996 for roughly 8 months. Am I still eligible for employment from Customs.
    Thanks

      This is the answer that comes up on the FAQ's on the CBP website:

      Question
      What are the age requirements for employment with CBP?

      Answer
      Although the majority of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) jobs have no age restriction, the day before your 40th birthday is the last day that you can be appointed as a Border Patrol Agent and the day before your 37th birthday as a CBP Officer. An exception to this maximum entry age applies to men and women who are interested in becoming CBP P-3 airplane pilots. Because of a shortage of pilots who have the skills to fly these airplanes, we have extended the entry age for this law enforcement job to age 40.

      The only other exception to the age requirement is if you are currently or have previously been a federal law enforcement officer. This exception does not apply to persons who were law enforcement officers for State or local governments or who have served in the military. If you are applying for a position with a maximum age requirement, but may be exempt because of previous federal law enforcement employment, please contact the staffing specialist listed on the announcement for help in determining your eligibilty for consideration.


      As to your previous employment for 8 months as a BPA 12 years ago, not sure if it would count, that would be something that you would have to ask a recruiter or MHC (Minneapolis Hiring Center).

      Good Luck

        • Got all the paperwork today and sent it back. Does anyone know why they require 2-3 copies of a lot of the documents? Just curious.

                          • Michigan Offer To

                            Hey,
                            Just wanted to let everyone know they are sending out TO's. I got a huge packet in the mail with dvd, test manual, and TO letter for Michigan today! The letter also says it should only take 3-6 months for processing for the Michigan position. I tested a few months ago (In May I think) and got the TO today!

                              If you were covered by 6c/12d then you have an 8 month extension, so you're still eligible until you're 37 and 8 months. The only reason for the age limit is the maximum retirement age. If you have service that was covered by LE retirement you receive a extension equal to the amount of time served.
                              But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                              For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.
