    Curious to know if anyone here has or knows someone who has been able to stay on after 62 because they were in a clinical capacity, regardless of area (medicine/mental health/dental/admin, etc-I think admin was actually considered a clinical area in the order I saw). I would link the order, or maybe it's actually a statute, that says this is possible but I forgot where I came across it. Thanks in advance.

    Uncle Schmedley's alive!

    Dude, that's 50 years away. Probably should focus your aim on more proximate goals like prom.

    How did I know the first response would be a troll... good to see things around here haven't changed any. You sir, did not major in math as an undergrad. If 62 were 50 years away I think I could get my 20 in before I hit 62... thanks for the thought though, carry on.

    Edit: I hate typos.

    Navy reserve officers in certain career fields may request age waivers beyond 62. See Question 7 at:

    This is a different PERS webpage with the active component's (??) guidance:

    Anecdotally over the years I've seen a few clinicians who had to have been well beyond 62, but can't point to a specific name or role.
