Q. I am a 62-year-old Postal Service letter carrier under FERS with a 10 percent permanent disability from an on-the-job injury. When I received my disability, another carrier mentioned that I was entitled to extra benefit in my retirement. Is this true and how can I claim the benefit? I hope to retire in 3½ years.
A. Not to the best of my knowledge. I’m not aware of any such additional benefit.
