Video: Retired letter carrier’s pension, health insurance stop after OPM declares him dead

LITTLETON – Jim Clarkson has spent the last six weeks trying to prove to Washington D.C. based bureaucrats he’s not dead.

The 75-year-old’s deceased status caused him to lose his pension and some of his medical benefits.

"I haven’t received the January, February or the March [pensions]," Clarkson said. "That’s three months pension that I haven’t received."

The 30-year veteran of the U.S. Postal Service has been retired for a while and has been drawing a pension paid by the Office of Personnel Management.
