Q. I worked for the Postal Service as a full time letter carrier for 23 years. I left the Postal Service in 2008. I would like to know what the value of the retirement account is if I took the cash out now in a lump sum?
A. As a former FERS employee, you’d be entitled to a refund of your retirement contributions plus accrued interest. To find out how much that would be, write to:
Office of Personnel Management
Federal Employees Retirement System
P.O. Box 45
Boyers, PA 16020
Include your full name, date of birth, Social Security number, and where and when you were last employed by the government.
