  • Question about retirement age

    Hi friends! Does anyone know by chance if there is a mandatory retirement policy as far as the OKC Metro Police Agencies are concerned (specifically OKC, Yukon, Mustang, Norman, Moore, Edmond, El Reno and Midwest City). I'm 43 years old with military background. I wouldn't like to go through the recruitment process hassle if I'm not going to have at least a 20 years of career (ideally to retire at 65). Thank you.

    The only age requirement I've seen is 45 to start. I haven't heard of a mandatory retirement age.

      There is no mandatory retirement age for OCPD.

        Thank you for your answers! As far as I'm concerned OLERS is the agency that provides pension to the Oklahoma State LEOs, correct? After reading the OLERS 2013 Handbook (http://www.olers.state.ok.us/DocumentForms.aspx), page 12, I found out that the eligibility for retirement starts at the age of 62. It is also stated that "....no event shall commencement of distribution of the accrued retirement benefit of a member be delayed beyond April 1 of the calendar year following the later of: (1) the calendar year in which the member reaches seventy and one-half (70 1/2) years of age; or (2) the actual retirement date of the member.". So I'm trying to "decipher" what OLERS is trying to say. I don't see any reference to "mandatory retirement" but maybe I'm wrong. What do you think?

          Can't fully decipher it, but it sounds like worst case scenario would be a mandatory retirement at 70 1/2, which shouldn't present a problem for you anyways (honestly, if you are still needing to work at the PD at age 70 you've screwed something up along the way).
