    I hate it hoe post office people get to retire after only 20 years! Wish I could have retired at 41.

    to retire after twenty years in the USPS, you must be 56 years old and then, at that minimum level, your retirement pay is 50 to 75 percent lower than when they were working…..
    most postal employees hang around for thirty plus years in order to maintain at least a comfortable retirement income without the necessity of going right back into the work force to make ends meet

    Once a post office clerk in Hong Kong tried to make me put a customs declaration on a package I was sending within Hong Kong. He wouldn’t listen to reason. I went back another day.

    I have been a Ziggy fan for more years than I can remember. Lately, some of the strips just don’t make sense. I hope the old Ziggy comes back!

    In reply to templo sud. As a retired postman, I advise you to look under your car seat or in the glove compartment. This isn’t Russia where you have to send 6 letters to be sure that one gets through. I know several clerks and carriers who were fired with complete loss of retirement benefits for throwing mail away or stealing from the mail, this includes “junk” mail.

    Dunestrider. You could have gotten a job in the Post Office if you passed the test with a high enough score. Every clerk and carrier you see, did. This is what I saw. 75% of the people who took the test didn’t pass with a score of 70%. The rest were put on a list by declining score. Job offers went to the highest scorers. My experience as a trainer showed that someone with a score less than 85 wasn’t very good and didn’t last. Generally, if you weren’t in the upper third of your high school class, you couldn’t pass the test. You didn’t learn the critical thinking skills needed. Under the old Civil Service retirement, you needed to work almost 42 years to get full benefits. If you retired with 20, you would get less than half. If you then worked under SS, you would get screwed by the SS Offset.

    I agree with you totally. My husband worked under Civil Service for 30 years and “retired” at age 55. His pension is not even half his salary, then when he claimed SS, they only gave him $200 a month and CUT his Civil Service retirement by $400 a month! Where is the justice in that? He qualified for both, should get both, but that is not how it works. He would have been much better off working for a private company and not the government. Everyone thinks that civil service pays so much—not true for most workers.

    All the people that can’t pass the government’s tests work for Fox News apparently!
