Gator- He still has to except a transfer after converting 3 CCAs. Does not matter if all 3 done at once or over a period of time. Example 1 CCA converted January, another 1 converted July, another 1 converted November. Next position goes to an transfer who is qualified. Then process goes back to CCAs being converted.

Good luck foreverptf. I made regular a year ago and am trying to get back to my home office. I talked to the PM there, who is a friend of mine. He told me he'd rather promote 1 CCA at a time then bring me in. If he brings me in he has to promote 3 CCA's.

JB- I put in for that office and others on ereassign. I am subbing in that office so I know what is The CCA has been holding that regular route down since the end of June. :(

foreverptf....How have you put in for a vacancy that is not there yet...you might want to keep informed as to the situation in the other station...and check Erreasign at the beginning of every month...That is when they post all vacancies...Good Luck

ForeverPTF....Read M-01834....You should be good to go as long as there are no other UARs, or PTFs within the same installation...And also you will need to be the 1st to put in for the vacancy when it comes up...If any other PTF puts in for it prior to you, then they will get it

The one in Washington said he is going to talk to the postmaster general and get back with me. He took down a lot of information. If that CCA gets it because he is in that office and I am not- I will never step foot into that office again. They didn't even have CCAs when I started in 1998. This is so ridiculous.

I WANT full time spot badly. I am on ereassign and I have talked to Washington. The locals tell me that in January the route may be up for me to get. I was informed that the one CCA over in that office just gave his 2 week notice so I have to go over and do 2 -3 hour walking routes. Meanwhile the cca with less than a year in holds down the full time route :(

the two small offices near me have 2 ptf carriers each. I know for a fact they are not looking for full time jobs on e-reassign. The larger office 40 miles away made all ptf's regular and they just converted 6 cca's to reg. They all seem to believe if they do nothing then nothing will happen in 2016. They are content doing what they do. But the truth is, no one really has an answer about what will become of them in 2016. Everyone speculates, but no one really knows.

Foreverptf...you say they are going to bring another Clerk down into the carrier craft...it sounds as if they have already brought a couple into your office...the ratio on that should be 1 to 4...if they have already brought 1 clerk in...then they are required to promote 4 PTFs/CCAs before they can bring in another clerk...

9259-you need to be looking on ereassign and get yourself converted to regular. Especially with Congress looking to screw the USPS and its employees, I'd be getting a regular gig somewhere soon. I was a ptf for 7 years and made regular last year. Be proactive-

I am surprised to see that there are Ptfs left. I thought they all got full time. I really thought I was the only one left. I am watching CCA and Pse clerks get full time hours just not considered full time while I get hmmm 3 hours a day. What is wrong with this picture? Oh and they are going to bring another clerk down into the city carrier route.. We wouldn't want to take any time away from the PTf clerks or the PSe's would we? No screw the PTf carriers.

I properly resigned, and I did not take any retirement contribution refunds.

Did you take a refund of your retirement contributions when you left the USPS?
08:00 PM ET (US)
I found out. My USPS SF50 shows, on line #8 I had contributed to FERS
towards retirement--which is a valid point.
However, I need more info to reply to them.
On the OPM.gov-Office Personnel Management website, under FERS Service Credit,
FERS Information >Service Credit.
They talk about making a payment for the types of service, in order to credit it
towards retirement.
OPM publications are not friendly users. It takes knowledge for interpretation.
It goes beyond my understanding.

I was hoping you could direct me to a good source. Thank you
