            This is not new for the US Congress. Follow the link and you will see one of the investigation presented to US Senator about the incongruent results for Polygraph. This is only one investigation. Hope many of you can read this case.

                  I don't think he was arguing the validity of the polygraph, just simply saying that in order to have it removed from this agencys process, it would need congressional approval and that your source was likely incorrect in their statement.

                  I got my "eligible" email, too! Waiting on a poly date ;

                    • The retirement requires 20 years and meeting the MRA,min retirement age. The max age you can work is age 57 then you have to go.
                      Regular non LE feds need 30 years or anything and age 60. They compute at 1.1% . /year x number of years while LEO figures at 1.7% x years.
                      One thing I can tell you as a retired Fed is this and consider it a warning no more of a threat. Forget this AT YOUR PERIL. Iwarned the new FERS folks about this 20+ years back and many ignored it at their current regret. TSP THAT 3rd leg of the triad retirement system that replaced the former and much better CSRS system. Save money like a squirrel or you WILL suffer later on.
                      Contribute the full amount of 5% to get the full match. Do it as a ROTH right from the start. Put in all you can early on so it will grow for you.
                      Here is why. That retirement plan isn't really very good by comparison to many other mainstream LE State and local agencies. TSP supposed to be 1/3 of your retirement. in reality it works out more like 2/3 unless you live in a cave. The early retirement acts on that badly too due to the fewer number of years calculated even at the higher rate of 1.7%. Count On having 500,000 in your tsp for a stable retirement. Its not hard if you don't have divorces hot cars and a swarm of kids to put through college.

                      There you have it, the truth the Gov won't tell you and few their retirement advice is also pretty sketchy to non existent CBP anyways. This is probably the best advice you are going to get in your career so someone ought to make it a stickey. You can thank me in 25 years if I'm still kickin.
