Me.........an e-check is where they sent a check online that you supposedly approve to your bank...it is similar to a check by phone...in this incident they did a generic copy of my wife's voice giving permission to send this check....this was a different incident that what the letter by post office was about....just keep an eye on your bank account and credit report as the letter advises.....

mailman.. what's a e-check... In my letter from the PO, it doesn't say anything about my bank account # might be hacked or anything about bank routing #'s... Should we change our bank account #'s????? And let OWCP know???? Letter just says my codes might be hacked, like CPT codes and medical info... Did your letter say possible hack of banking?????

Please read - from PEN

December 18, 2014 – In a new development on the earlier data breach at the Postal Service, USPS has now sent individual letters to another group of employees who may have had personal information compromised. USPS informed us that a large number of Workers Compensation records were “possibly” compromised, in some cases including not only personal identifying information (such as social security number), but certain medical information and bank routing information as well. Further, these types of records go back many years, as opposed to the earlier reports related to records back as far as May 2012.

Bigcitycarrier i worked in a office ic so ca had a carrier that had aids and it was all over office that he had aids a sup.as well as postmaster were the only ones who knew this oh my how do you think this medical condition got out to entire office .???? Nothing is private in the postal service.talk about violations good old fed gov.

what would you do if there was interesting info in your OWCP file from the USPS, from a former co-worker (he transferred out) who SHOULD know nothing of your current medical issues. Our office mgr and a clerk have been in a EEO case (not me) before about how private medical records are handled, and are public knowledge to some, and shared with others in other offices (non-management) What should/should not our files contain in our local offices, and who should have access to them. I feel by management sharing my records or condition with others is a violation, and also feel it is managements responsibility to secure access to private medical records. What do you do?
Where do you start?

The reason I would do this is to get monies into my TSP account....
11:38 AM ET (US)
Hey all, not sure if anyone knows this but here goes... I am considering filing a grievance which would include requesting 4yrs back pay.... This is a grievance of non-compliance to an existing pre-arb agreement between the union and Post Office.. Asking for 4yrs back pay would include paying back OWCP as I have been collecting on that the past 4yrs.. I know I possibly would have to pay OWCP extra monies on top of that... I feel pay raises thru those yrs would help as my pay was calculated on 2011 pay.. getting money put into my tsp would out way any monies I would have to pay..
But I am trying not to have to pay extra.

Does anyone know that seeing health payments were taken out of my compensation pay, would I have to pay this back also?

Can I request back pay but give PO back the check and have them reimburse OWCP and any extra monies that OWCP may be entitled to???

Anybody ever do this?? And if you did, how much did you have to reimburse OWCP..

Just trying to figure out how much I would have to pay OWCP for 4yrs... It would only be on 20hrs a week...

Don't think for one second the AJ or the ALJ is on your side.... I knew one judge that was tipped from the Postal side to deny a case. That case was appealed and I was involved, on getting a different set of eyes as the judge was bias against my client. That process alone was a royal pain to get new eyes assigned, but was worth the glorious outcome. In the end this agency will always get what they have coming. That said, would be the truth and justice.

This is from the Pittman Class Attorney's when they answered a question on the class website. Many people are inquiring daily and I figured they might not see this so I copied it to help. They are busy screening and there is the possibility of appeal--funny thing-- We have time limits when it comes to EEO but does the attorney's for the Postal Service? Nope, you literally have to compel the court to force sanctions. Then the court system itself is flawed and depending on who your judge is, you can have issues there as well. The system is definitely NOT in the complainant's favor.

Is this a recent response you received from a question to the Pittman class attorneys? Or is this just what is off the website? I was hoping they would surprise the eligible class members with a check before Christmas. That would have been nice no matter if it was a small check or not. Anything this time of year would help. The Pittman attorneys need to update their website. I think the information on it is a little old.

 about the Pittman Class action which used to be the Edmond Walker class

How long will it take for me to receive my settlement award?

Settlement Award checks will not be mailed out until 300 days or longer after the Notice of Final Agency Action and Claim Form and Releases are issued, depending on whether an appeal or federal court complaint is filed that challenges the validity of the Settlement. Again, this process could take years.

Mick contact OIG and file a step 1 to show you acted in good faith efforts then contact the NLRB and file a 507 charge with them. Keep up also with OSHA to show that you are working under a hostile work environment. If need any assistance let me know. Thanks and hope that helps
