Incentive offer deadline

APWU employees face decision

Full-time career employees in the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) bargaining units have until Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, at 8:30 p.m. EST to take advantage of their special incentive offer. Part-time employees and non-traditional, full-time employees with schedules less than 40 hours per week have until Jan. 4, 2013 to accept the offer.

Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) employees also may be eligible for an annuity supplement, paid in addition to their FERS retirement annuity payments. Click here for additional information about this annuity supplement.

Last October, USPS offered a Voluntary Early Retirement (VER) and Special Incentive Offer to APWU employees represented by the APWU. Eligible APWU employees who want to leave under the VER — as well as APWU employees who have reached their minimum retirement age and service requirements and those who wish to voluntarily resign — are eligible for this special cash incentive.

Complete details of how to accept the offers, as well as FAQs and retirement videos, are available at the Workforce Connection website on LiteBlue. Employees with questions can contact the Human Resources Shared Services Center at 877-477-3273, option 5.

USPS encourages this information to be shared with all eligible employees.
