Let R_n = max0<=j<=n S_j − S_n be a random walk S_n reflected in its maximum. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for finiteness of passage times of Rn above horizontal or certain curved (power law) boundaries. Necessary and sufficient conditions are also given for the finiteness of the expected passage time of R_n above linear and square root boundaries.
