04/05/2017 – The Postal Service is distributing the final payment of the 1.6.b Global Settlement to retirees on April 21st. The payment is part of the remedy agreed upon in the Global Settlement reached between the APWU and the USPS on December 5, 2014. Eligible active employees have already received their final payment.
Retirees/employees no longer working for the Postal Service will have their payment sent to their last employing work office location. Individuals should check at the location where they received their initial check payment. Because former employees are receiving a separate check, there may be a gap of a few days or a week at the most before their check arrives at their former post office.
It is important that retirees alert their Postmaster and/or station manager of a pending check arriving in their name. In the event retirees fail to pick up their check, at some point, they will be returned to the USPS HQ Finance/Payroll Department.
Retirees can go online to determine the amount they are due to receive on the final round of payments by taking the following actions:
1. Log onto www.apwu.org.
2. Enter the “Members Only” tab and follow the prompts for the $56 Million 1.6.B Global Remedy Initial Payout Submitted to the USPS.
Follow the process for retirees and/or employees no longer working for the Postal Service.
