Is annuity safe?


Q. I retired from the Postal Service in 2006 under CSRS. With all of the turmoil surrounding the post office, is my pension still safe?

A. The Postal Service has nothing to do with your annuity. Your connection to it ended on the day you retired. The payments you receive are made by the U.S. Treasury and taken from the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund.
