Early-out offer


Q. I have put in for retirement effective Sept. 30. I have been unable to work since March and will follow with a disability retirement request.

I am a postmaster with 27 years of service and 56 years old.

So, as of now, I will be taking a 35 percent reduction and not getting the special retirement supplement. Today, I understand an early-out is being offered. The offers will be sent out starting Sept. 16. Since mine is already in place, will I get the offer, or do I withdraw my current request and reapply?

A. Nothing would prevent you from withdrawing your retirement application.
