Q. I have worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 12 years and have 935 hours of sick leave and 540 hours of annual leave. An opportunity for a city job has come up; do I get paid for my sick and annual leave if I resign?
Q. I served six years active duty with the Navy and 16 years with the Air Force Reserve. I bought back the six active years, as I am employed with the U.S. Postal Service. I retired from the Air Force Reserve back in 2011. How does the buy back help/hurt my military reserve retirement pay when I am 65?
Q. I retired with 30-plus years of federal government service. If I accepted a job with the U.S. Postal Service, will my retirement continue? I’m curious because the Postal Service branched off from the rest of the civil service agencies. A. Yes, your annuity would continue. However, the salary of your new position would be reduced by the amount of your annuity. While the U.S. Postal Service is an independent agency of the federal government, all its employees are covered by the same retirement system as other government agencies.
Q. I resigned from the U.S. Postal Service in 2005 with 490 hours of sick leave. I started working for the Department of Homeland Security in 2013. I have tried to contact the Office of Personnel Management to see if I could get my sick leave back. Is the Post Office different whereas my sick leave can’t be restored?
Q. I’m a FERS employee with the U.S. Postal Service. I have been with USPS for 28½ years and have two years and four months of time in the military. Can I retire now and still receive my special retirement supplement, or do I have to wait until I get 30 years with USPS?
Q. Can you explain what would happen to my pension as a reinstated employee? I retired in 2011 from the sales department in the U.S. Postal Service. I took a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority. I was 53, now I’m 59. I would like to go back to my job (I just saw the posting). I have been getting the supplement since age 56. I get $27,348 with my pension and supplement. I left at the pay scale of $68,000 — the same as the job is offering. Would I still get a pension in my direct deposit? Will I accrue a new pension?…
Q. I am a retired U.S. Postal Service employee. I work another job full time but maintain my federal Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage. I am now married, effective with the same-sex marriage law. My spouse, who is 70, also works full time and has BCBS through his employment. When he retires, can I add him to my insurance as he does not have any health insurance benefit other than Medicare? What would be the cost? Would/could we both have Medicare and BCBS?
