Mandatory retirement age is the month I have 20 years but I’ve been told you can work up to age 61 but no one seems to know the steps to take to get it approved.

A DoD Component head may exempt an individual having exceptional skills and experience as an ATC from mandatory separation until he or she becomes 61 years of age, in accordance with section 8335(a) of Reference (d) for CSRS employees and section 8425(a) of Reference (d) for FERS employees. In such a case, the employee will be separated on the date specified by the official who exercises personnel appointing authority and no later than the day the ATC becomes age 61. You would have to check with your agency who that individual is to make that request.

Thank you for your response. Yes that part I knew I guess I should have specified how do I find out who that person is to make that decision. That’s the answer i’m having trouble getting the answer to.

Someone at your agency should know who is the DOD Component Head for this purpose. I have linked you to a document on this topic. https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/140025/140025_vol331.pdf
