Postal Service retirement


Q. I will be 60 years old in December and have worked for the U.S. Postal Service 24 years. The Postal Service is cutting back. If I wanted, could I or resign and defer retirement at a later date without losing accumulated benefits?

A. Because you are 60 and have at least 20 years of service, you can retire on an immediate, unreduced annuity any time you want.
