USPS says it doesn’t know if postal workers were affected by OPM breach

In a brief item posted on the USPS News Link site yesterday afternoon, the USPS said that it doesn’t know yet whether or not its employees were affected by the OPM data breach:

The personally identifiable information of approximately 4 million current and former federal employees was potentially compromised, according to OPM. The Postal Service doesn’t know if current or former postal employees were affected. From June 8-19, OPM will send notifications to all 4 million individuals whose information was potentially compromised.

The email will come from and contain information regarding credit monitoring and identity theft protection services being provided to those federal employees affected by the data breach. If OPM doesn’t have an email address for an individual on file, a standard letter will be sent via the Postal Service.
