Newsbreak: Voluntary Early Retirement to be offered to carriers and clerks in select locations

In a move to further right-size complement levels to better match workload, the Pacific Area is offering a voluntary early retirement (VER) to carriers and clerks working at select impacted sites and at non-impacted offices within a 50-mile radius of the impacted sites.

VER offer sites and timelines will be announced when the information becomes available.

These changes are part of the Pacific Area efforts to streamline operations, increase efficiencies and reduce costs in support of the Postal Service’s action plan to ensure a strong, viable organization now and in the future.

For more information, contact your local Human Resources office.

Please note: PEN has no further information regarding this release and cannot answer VER questions.

    This might only be for hawaii as they have so many excess people and no where to put them.

    Before they can offer VER to other employees they should get their act together most usps employees who retired in the last six months have not received a payment.I among them check it out the OPM will tell you they can’t keep up with retirements that they hired some people to help with the problem and they are better now instead of waiting 138 days they are down to 117 well guess what my papers were sent in early dec I retired in feb still no money.I’m way over the time limit I notified my congressman they won’t return his calls what a surprise so my fellow usps brothers and sisters have at least 6 months to a year of cash on hand to pay bills because you won’t be getting any checks for a while

    Does anyone know if there is a cash incentive with the new early out? Or is it just penalty-free,

    Why do they only offer early outs to carriers in select offices. They should offer an early out to carriers nationwide. Anyone that is 50 with 20 plus years and wants to go should be offered an early out.

    Good I hope you all get a chance to go so I may have a chance to work for the USPS! I have been unemployed for 5 years! No one wants to hire an old person like myself. I am 60 years old!

    Thankyou Jim. I agree. I’m 51 with 23 years in. Would go in a heartbeat if not penalized.
