Q. I retired from the Postal Service in July after 14 years. I would like to go back to work for the Postal Service. Is there a waiting period that I have to go through or is this allowed. I am 61 and I did not take the buyout for retirement. If I were rehired, would I go in as a brand new hire?
A. There isn’t any waiting period. If you were rehired by the Postal Service, you would be a re-employed annuitant and the salary of your new job would be offset by the amount of your annuuity.
