Doing fairly well. Coming up on 3 yrs cancer free. Have 1 more reconstruction surgery coming up. Still keep up with some friends from postal days & just checked in here. Seems like mostly the same folks. Glad all seems well. My old office is now a 4 hr office. The community lost a great deal with the near closure. But times change.

Did fine thru holidays. Presently scaring customers with new price hike. Some are pretty up there. Interesting with fuel coming down. . . USPS should make a better profit then what was expected.
We have new PTF. Awaiting for my maximization to kick in. Still majorly busy . . . and of course, that was expected today after a holiday.
How is it going on your end?

/m13683 I lucked out in my claim in that I had proof of value for what I mailed. I think that tends to be the biggest problem for most, in proving the value. I found the process easy and quick. I liked I was given a choice to have check sent to the addressee or the sender. There was no additional approval by a post office, although I did tell the addressee to keep the packaging until the claim was settled. It could be that if the claim was over a certain amount or maybe questionable they instruct the claimant to go through the post office. Not sure.

I found out today that website is the preferred way for a customer to file a claim. The customer would have to upload proof of value. I was told that If a customer couldn't file a claim online that he could call 1-800-ASKUSPS and they would walk him through the claim process and send him forms to fill out.

/m13681 10 days. That is fast.....good to hear.
I couldn't remember the form number either.
This customer is very knowledgeable with the USPS web site. I will see what I can learn from her claim experience :)

I thought I read in an email once that a claim had to be approved by a post office before USPS would send money on a claim.

Used to be 100, if I recall correctly - but I've been gone for almost two years, so it could have changed :)

/m13675 on the website is easy. I had a claim placed and paid within 10days. But if customer not able, there is still a paper claim. Sorry, can't remember the form number.

My break in service was great :)
Working six days a week all year I hadn't realized how much I needed a break.

I received a letter in the mail from the USPS stating that now that I had a year in as a PSE with the five day break in service that I might qualify for a discount on health insurance.....if I am a Union member.
How do I join the Union ?

How does a customer file a claim on an insured parcel ?
Is it only done via ?
What are my responsibilities as a PSE in a RMPO if a customer brings me a damaged item ?

lol SouthernClerk :)
Nothing new up here.
Oh, I have my mandatory week break in service next month...I will not get paid for being out of work but the USPS will cash in all the AL I have accumulated during the year.

Well? before its crazy . . . just thought I'd wish everyone a great rest of the year. Invite everyone to drop a line or two and share how things are going (working or retired). I'm still working 6 days a week. Office has opening for another PTF and I have requested my position be converted to full time. Probably something that should have been done years ago but I kind of figured why bother, I'm making full time hours. Now concerned with new PTF, my hours would be cut.
Most of the offices are stretched even thinner, as not only do we not have enough clerks they are now spreading PMs out. My PM is over two L18 offices but no official classification (APO or RMPO) as of yet. Suspect eventually both offices will be RMPO's
Big push for Amazon and this weekend starting an increase of offices delivering Sunday packages. Retail already picking up, so gut feeling is this will be a good revenue season. How 'bout ya'll?
