Q. I am currently off work and getting compensation from the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. If the Postal Service offers early retirement, can I take the offer and retire while on workers’ comp? I am 52, and have more than 30 years of service. I have applied for disability retirement, but if an early out is offered, I would rather go that route instead, if possible.
A. I’m not aware of any bar to your accepting an offer of early retirement.
