i am almost 62 to retire and is unable to because the usdol has not paid me my compensation after they lost the file. Blaming me for not having medical for 21 years. owcp is service time when they pay you. They are destroying our postal workers by allowing usdol to have control of the compensation fund when they are doing claims wrong. The post service needs to petition for the funds to be done by them and that we have a higher courts because they are making many errors that they are not accountable.

The problem with postal managers and those charged with monitoring them, including inspectors and oig, is that there so many of them living in glass houses. In my district they finally fired a postmaster who was known by 2 "superiors" to be stealing money from the USPS. Well, a supervisor finally ratted them out and too many people knew and they could not cover it up any longer. And that supervisor was rewarded with the money thieving PM's job. Best part? The supervisor was a clerk and pleaded no contest to stealing mail. So they put him directly into a MGMT training program and sent him back to the office from which he stole mail. But now he was supervising his former co-workers who knew they whole story. So, you see, there is no shame among postal managers. And no crime that cannot and has not been tolerated. Personally, as a customer I would have wanted the money thief as postmaster instead of the mail thief. But the honest public doesn't get to choose what type of crook handles their mail. Other immoral, dishonest, and possibly criminal postal managers make those choices.

What's your wife's name?

The reason you are not allowed to post names is that someone might, and I mean I will, look that name up on the website that lists all postal employees, their position (job title, I mean), and pay.

Well, I finally got to read a post before it got deleted. I'll give it an hour. But I will say if your wife is doing a POOM she isn't very discriminating. They tend to be real lowlifes. Ours has been in the criminal newspaper they sell at the convenience stores. There used to be standards for ALL postal employees. Now there are none for any. Like the ones who would be in jail if they were school teachers. It seems moral and financial misdeeds get you promoted since you have proven you have what it takes.

You may retire any day at any time with no notice. The only effect on your retirement is when you will get your money. If you told them today or 2 months ago that you are retiring the 31st you might get the first check sooner than if you told them on the way out the door on the 31st, but by the time the dust settles you will get the same money. If you don't mind perhaps waiting on the first check, you don't have to give any notice.

Go to liteblue (eRetire?) and research. There is retirement "counseling" available. Call Human Resources Shared Services Center for more information.

The most important questions involve which system you have (CSRS or FERS) and if you are eligible for an unreduced annuity. Under FERS your age and years of service might affect the FERS supplement and the 10% bump in retirement at age 62 with at least 20 years of service (under FERS you might want to retire at age 62 instead of shortly before).

**I don't know if the shutdown is affecting OPM.**

I am ready to retire. Today is 1/10/2019. Is it possible to retire effective 1/31/2019 if I submit paperwork immediately?

/m4606 I would imagine the honest answer is that most PM's don't "work" a full day. And that supervisors generally do the majority of the daily work. Which is why supervisors generally put in for PM position as soon as they can.
Now with that said, I'd say you burned your bridges with reporting to POOM, HR, Labor, IG and DM.
There are many things that are not fair. In future, pick your battles. Pick them carefully.

/m4607 LOL

If the POOM or DM only worked 25 hours a week they wouldn't have their job for more than a day.

Why do you think they are working more hours than the PM's?

I am a supervisor that works in Texas. I have worked there for 25 years. The problem are many, but the no brainer ones are simple to fix. many of the solutions are simple. How many of you out there are working in an office where the salaried Postmaster works only a few hours a day then leaves. Of course most of their time is spent in their office and they are totally disconnected from the operation. The last PM was their three years to the day. They were there to get their top 3 year's salaries. They worked 20 to25 hours a week, and days and sometimes weeks passed where they didn't show up at all and used no leave. The POOM was informed about this many times as well as HR, Labor and the office of the inspector General. The DM was also noticed. No one did anything about it, except take disciplinary actions against me to protect members of their cabal. What happened in this once very well ran office is that it was driven into a ditch, do to the PM not caring about the job they were hired to do. If the POOM or DM only worked 25 hours a week they wouldn't have their job for more than a day. The higher ups have decided not to a dress the millions of dollars basically being stolen by Salaried PMs allowing the mail service of an entire city to get worse and worse. HOLD YOUR postmaster accountable to the job they were hired and paid to do

I am not going to look up reference. It is my understanding that the postal worker chooses the type of leave. And that the denial rule is that this is an instance where it is not up to mgmt whether or not to approve lwop. If it is FMLA, the worker can choose lwop--mgmt cannot deny lwop and force sick or annual leave usage.
06:18 PM ET (US)
Is it true that they are not allow to denied FMLA if it is LWOP, but according to the DOL, they do not have to approve paid leave. Not sure if it is correct, but heard it somewhere.
