      That’s good news. But 413 you’re the only one so far we’ve heard that’s moved on without BI being complete.

  • Received the “good news” email and another one for locations about 15 minutes apart from each other today. About an hour later, I was told to disregard the locations email. Then 30 minutes after that, I received a call for FIT (doing it tomorrow). I called OPM this morning to check up on my background and it was still pending (sent to OPM Sunday), which would explain the reason for the disregard email..

      So you got the good news email and scheduled for the FIT and your background hasn’t been adjudicated yet? There might be hope for me! I’m waiting for that email, OPM said yesterday my BI was still pending.

  • Got the call for drug test today and have my medical next Thursday. BI was transferred from my current agency as it was adjudicated this past year.

    • Has anyone had to do another blood work at the office expense? I was told to do another, I do them for my job every year and perfectly fit.

      • Why would I get the eligible e-mail telling me to choose my location preferences for the December academy if the OPM says my BI is still pending?

          Possibly a waiver to go to class while they complete you background while you’re there? They may be granting interim clearances in order to fill slots. Just my guess.

          Thanks. Its definitely possible. I know CBP was doing it as well. But theirs was only a public trust.

      • Got called with the district I wanted today. They said the final offer will be emailed around the 3rd week of November. December 6th travel day Dec 7th official start date.

          I'm probably ending up I DC. Not my ideal situation but I cant complain. This is such a great opportunity. See you boys in Georgia.

      • Completed and passed the fit today. Now just waiting for a potential offer.

        Comment


        • Have a question about fit test. When they call or email for fit, do you have a certain amount of days or do they work with you?

            For me they informed me they had to send the results to HQ by the 5th, that left me with completing it today (Friday) or latest (This Monday). I can’t speak for anyone else.

            Speaking from experience, you take what they give you. They said they would work w me before for the interview if i couldnt make it. So I rescheduled...i never got a call back. Ever.

            Thanks! Yeah I would but my current LEO job requires me to travel 50% or more.

          Maybe OPM is not on-track with the expedited BI cases.

            Not sure honestly

        • I had to pay for another blood count on my own expense dues to my test being abnormal. I'm healthy and do one every year for my current LE job which is more strict than the Marshal's. The nurse looked over the Marshal's test and didn't understand why I had to do another one since I'm healthy. Did anyone have to retake one? Also, any contact number for medical besides email since I rarely get a response?

          Thanks!

          • Hey y’all! Do they let you know if you are not being considered for the position if you do not pass the interview? Or do you never hear back unless you pass?

              I interviewed in February, was told to resend some forms again in May. Didn't hear anything so e-mailed in September, they gave me the standard "takes a 10-12 months for the process...e-mail again in 60 days" so I did and received an e-mail saying I was still an active applicant. I applied in Aug 2017.

          • Couple of questions for anyone in the know-
            1) Does the clock for your one year at the GL-7 rate begin on your date of hire, or the date you graduate the academy?
            2) I've read the information on the USMS site about retirement, but it's very vague. Does anyone know if USMS offers post-employment health insurance? Also, how is the pension portion of the retirement plan calculated (ie, 50% of your last 3, etc)?

              The clock starts the day you begin employment. Insurance continues (with various rules). FERS retirement is a combination of TSP, Special social security supplement, and pension which is 1.7% for 20 years (34%) and 1% each year thereafter. So, for example if you do 25 years you would retire at 39% plus TSP and Social security.

            1. Date of hire.
            2. Think of retirement as a tripod, you have Social Securiy, Federal Employees Retirement (FERS), and distribution from your TSP—Thrift Savings Plan (gov version of the 401k). As a Law Enforcement employee you get an enhanced multiplier.
            A regular Fed gets a 1.1, but as LE you get 1.7This means...at 20 years= 1.7 percent x High 3 year average salary x20 yea s and 1 percent x average high three years beyond 20 years.

            For more in depth explanations go to www.federalretirement.net.

            Health benefits are availiable post retirement at a decent rate, however you must be on the Federal health plan for at least 5 consecutive years before retirement. Some guys go to retire, then learn they aren’t eligible for health insurance because they were on the wife’s plan.

            It is a good retirement plan all in all.

            • Anyone know how long it takes for adjudication once your BI closes out? And after it closes out a guesstimate on PT notice? Thanks!

                According to NBIB priority investigations take 45 days to complete and 21 days to adjudicate. I real world terms 45 days is 6 months and 21 days is 3 months. lol
