Q. You have stated “Annual leave can’t be used to increase your length of service.” I’m not sure what that means. If I have four weeks of annual leave and want my official retirement date to be June 30, for example, why can’t I stop coming to work (i.e., use the annual leave that I earned) four weeks before June 30?
Q. I noticed that my Basic life insurance has a 75 percent reduction. I’m aware of the fact that I chose that. What has me puzzled is the amount of insurance before reduction and the amount of insurance after the final reduction.
Q. I was terminated from the U.S. Postal Service under FERS after 20 years of employment at the age of 45 (birth year 1965). At what age am I eligible to receive my pension benefits? Also, how do I calculate how much I will receive?
Q. I have a physical problem that may be classified as a disability. I’m 57 with 37 years of federal service, mostly with the U.S. Postal Service except for four years military. Are there any advantages in USPS disability for me, as I have passed my MRA?
Q. I was medically retired from the Army in 1985, with permanent disability retirement at 40 percent. I’ve been with the U.S. Postal Service for 33 years now and I am currently 100 percent permanent and total from the VA. I bought back my military time (three years eight months) from the Post Office in 2012. I’ve changed my mind and I want to keep my military benefits. How do I cancel and get a refund for my military buyback?
