Buyout rules


Q. I am a Civil Service Retirement System postal employee. I am eligible for optional retirement in December 2011. Are there any incentives available, or are they only for early retirement?

A. If your agency offered you an opportunity to retire early or a buyout, you would be free to accept it.
