  • Retirement question

    Does anyone know what the website is for our LEO Benefits? Not the one given by our state but I guess the federal benefit?

    Federal benefit? If a state, county or municipal LEO is entitled to Federal Retirement Benefits, I am not aware of it. Show me too! I have been lacking for the past 17 years.

    The only federal benefit I know of is Social Security at age 62 if you have accumulated an ample number of quarters - 40. Then they will reduce that by 66% unless you have been "Donating" to SS for thirty years.

    Then, at age 65 you have to accept medicare - but, that is the horse of a different color.

      +1 Thats it. Social Security.

      You might be thinking of Federal DEATH benefits if a PO is killed in the line of duy.


      But there are no federal retirement benefits.

        No, there is a seperate benefit we get and it is federal funded and you loose it after you are eligible for Social Security and it's called LEO. I just want to locate the web site.

              There's no such thing. I have numerous family members who are retired (my father and my uncles).

                Heck and some of us won't even get that. We don't pay into SS with my city.

                  How is that possible? I thought it was a requirement.

                    In Virginia we have LEO, but it's not a federal benefit. As a sworn police officer or firefighter we get 33% of our computed benefit added, until eligible for social security.

                      With LASD I never paid social security, Just my safety retirement. The only social security I ever paid was 3 years in the Army, so I will never get social security benefits.

                        Many large governmental organizations have private pension plans that meet certain requirements and the employees are exempt from Social Security taxes.

                        In Iowa any police department in a city over 10,000 can join the statewide retirement system that is exempt.
                        http://www.mfprsi.org/

                        The Iowa Department of Public Safety (State Police) also have a seperate plan that is exempt

                        The rest of us state employees contribute to IPERS----which is not SS exempt.............so I get both .

                        Another notable exception to Social Security taxes is the National Railroad Retirement Trust.. Railroad employees nationwide do not pay into Social Security.

                          a google search on the terms Virginia LEOS supplement found this document
                          http://www.varetire.org/Pdf/Publications/myVrsGuide.pdf
                          I think if you read the first page it might give you the information that will allow you to find the info you are asking for.
