Q. I was a 68-year-old United States Postal Service electronic tech with 44 years of service. Could I have collected my full retirement and continued working full time for the USPS?

A. For that to happen, you’d have to retire, after which the Postal Service would have to hire you as a reemployed annuitant. Whether they’d be willing to do that is something you’d have to find out.
