A discontinued service retirement and involuntary early retirement was the same thing as what the VERA offered minus the 20K or 10K payout. The difference is the former takes place because one rode out all the voluntary stuff and now should be eligible for unemployment.

I asked at the unemployment office and was told that you cant draw unemployment until your severance pay is paid out in full. Might depend on what state you are in.

If your position was a 40 hour PM job, and you were offered a PTF job at 4 hour office, it would not be a reasonable offer and you are still eligible for severance and unemployment. If you took the PTF job and had to do the 40 hours training etc. and work at other offices, that is the requirement of PTF. You are volunteering to leave EAS and go to craft. I know an EAS 11 PM who is taking the offer and glad to save her career status.

Does anyone know: if you are one of the Postmasters who rode all these RIF dates out and are still here, if you decide not to take the PTF position being offered are you still eligible for unemployment? And if you were offered to stay did they tell you the requirements were 40 hrs. classroom training ,followed by 40 hrs. on the job training and that you were obligated to work at other PO's when called to do so?

I can't call right now, but called usa.gov and they gave me 2#s to call. 888-767-6738 or the Labor Dept 866-487-2365. Maybe if more call we can get something done. I'm sure no one will come to us.

I'm in with the class action. I based my decision too, to leave end of Sept because of the pay cut they told me I would be getting if I stayed on. Wrong doing big time! I had the 30yrs, but I'm only 50. I could still be working with saved pay, finding out after the fact.

I was told by district and head of HR that if I didn't take the early out in Sept. that it appeared I would still be eligible to leave Jan. 9th without the 5% penalty attached, but she wouldn't put it in writing. This was what I based my decision on, so to change it after I accepted the early out without all the facts seems very deceitful. Now they are begging for us to come back for a month to do a mail count. Maybe they should have thought of this before they did what they did.

I agree but have no clue how to do it or if they covered their butts some how--maybe by the word we kept hearing over and over that it was a "fluidity" process. Maybe I should have documented the times HR called me to see what I was going to do (almost harassing but supposedly they were looking out for us). And I left early. That will probably exclude me from any suit, but I agree. They gave misleading and incorrect information and expected us to make life changing decisions, which I did based on the early information which has changed numerous times since then.

I agree 100 percent. Not fair or legal to change the rules after telling postmasters the dates for the RIF. Sign me up!

How does one go about getting a class action suit started or is there one already? Mgmt should have been made to put all the cards on the table before people had to make a life changing decision like the one put to us and then only to find out they changed the game plan again.

Some got 2%. All got at least 1%. It will be separate check sent to your old office. Contact that office. It will arrive 2 weeks from today. This is USPS check. Your annuity is paid through OPM (Treasury).

You must include a narrative that indicates the degree to which you possess the KSA.

For each work example or accomplishment listed, describe the situation, problem, or objective of the assignment, what was done, and the results obtained.
