Q. I quit the U.S. Postal Service after working 14 years for them. Am I entitled to any sort of pension from the USPS when I turn 62 or 65?
A. Yes, if you didn’t ask for a refund of your retirement contributions when you left. Regardless of whether you were covered by CSRS or FERS, you could apply for an annuity at age 62. If you were covered by FERS, you could also apply for an annuity when you reach your minimum retirement age. MRAs range from 55 to 57, depending on your year of birth. However, if you apply under the MRA+10 provision, your annuity would be reduced by 5 percent for every year you were under age 62.
I was hurt on the job and I had to leave, why was my check so small after 14 years
Were you a CSRS or a FERS employee? Are you receiving workers compensation or a disability annuity? If neither, did you receive a refund of your retirement contributions?
can a widow receive 2 survivor annuity payments from 2 sources: army and postal service army retirement age 77 and postal service civil services

If you didn’t receive a refund of your retirement contributions when you left, you’d be entitled to an annuity when you reach age 62. If you got a refund you wouldn’t be entitled to anything.
I have the same question and thanks . “refund of your retirement contributions” mean post office IRA? or Pension contribution ?
Money that was deducted from your pay and placed in the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund. These contributions will be mixed in with the government’s contributions and returned to you in monthly annuity payments when you retire.
I worked for USPS for 13 years. I was diagnosed with bilateral culpa tunnel and bilateral cubical tunnel syndrome. I was issued a MMI rating. While awaiting a decision on disability I was terminated (while on medically approved leave).
I received a 1,500.00 check stating it was my retirement. I worked 13 years and after many years of correspondence I finally just gave up.
How can I find out if I have retirement benefits?
