Postal Service retirement


Q: If you retire, will you be paid for any earned hours over the 440 annual leave hours?

A: No. Because you are a Postal Service bargaining unit employee with a maximum carryover limit of 440 hours, that’s the maximum amount for which you can receive a lump-sum payment.
