/m54050 Hannah never mentioned anything about an Early Out, just maybe a VSIP, with a touch of MRA+10.




USPS offering possible Early Out?

/m54050 I believe age penalties have only been waived for FERS not CSRS.

Oasis. I don't know how we could get in contact, but my brother's last move was to central fl because he did not want to be walking in snow as he got older. He accepted and also declined on ereassign for over a decade. You need to talk to people like him.

/m54052 oasis. If you quit, don't take your retirement contributions back without knowing what you are doing. You can get a nice annuity when you are 60. But, why not go on ereassign and apply to transfer to areas you want. Nothing says you can't decline offers you don't want. You can look up the rules, but I think you might want to get in line and see what happens. And if you have annual and get an opportunity a little early you might see if you can accept it and use annual and lwop until you move. My brother was a ptf clerk and also was a ptf carrier in 4 different states in 15 years. He made regular carrier all 4 places. I bet you will have opportunities if you plan ahead, especially if you have some flexibility.

/m54049 GG! Is that you?

/m54052 Transfer unlikely with all the excessings going on. But if you're willing to work as CCA or PSE, you might get picked up somewhere.

Still looking at a foot of white stuff here above Lake W NH. There are far worse things than that.

So I'm 45, got 23 years in (22 as full time) and will probably be voluntarily leaving the PO next summer. Who does that right? Happy to say that I have a career that I love and look forward to going to work everyday. However, I live in Maine and am DONE with the weather/scene. Actually I have been done for a LONG time but have to wait for the kiddo to graduate. Headed south where I will never see snow again; shoveling sunshine only. I hope to be able to transfer "somehow" down south but if I can't, I'm walking away. Crazy but life is to short!! Met and have known to many people who have waited to retire to max out. Guess what happens then? Yep, they retire and drop dead. All those "when I retire" stories gone in an instant. Just venting....

/m54050 Usually, only for white-collar positions, and mostly in other branches of Govt. service. Never, in the case of Craft employees at USPS. Expecting a waiver of age/years of service penalty? FORGET IT.

Are you guys saying you don't think Congress will get this done or are you just trying to harsh my mellow?

/m54044 Not if it was April fools day! 10 years added, with 100,000 lump sum coming too! I just hope all those CCA'S, waiting in the wings work out, because there's going to be a lot of vacancies with that huge incentive coming!

Nice try Hannah but as someone pointed out, it is April 1st. As for CSRS people being bribed to leave the max is $25K before taxes and they already have over 30 years in, those with Military time bought back is setting on 35 plus. Why would they leave now for about 5 months pay? Of course this would provide slots for people working at plants that are closing.

The April fools said that the P.O. would never offer any kind of a buyout when the Csrs people will either die off (natural attrition) or become so unhealthy, stressed, and miserable that they finally will be forced to leave.
