When my husband retired from USPS he was told by BCBS that he could keep his federal employee health insurance, so he did. Now that we are applying for Medicare Part B we are getting penalized for all the years we have not had Part B. We are in shock as social security is all we have. We were never told about the penalty!
What happened to the post about Health Insurance?
I was cleaning out my desk today and came across these. I worked for the USPS 1972-2006.
Is anyone familiar with any advantage health plan that is an extension of USPS Blue Cross insurance My wife and I are both Postal retirees, and looking to options now that we are both on Medicare.
BREAKING: Military Ballots In Pennsylvania Thrown Out, All Voted For President Trump, Sparks Investigation. U.S. Postal Service is now working for the Democrat Party it shows. https://trendingpolitics.com/breaking-military-ballots-in-pennsylvania-thrown-out-all-voted-for-president-trump-sparks-investigation/?utm_source=economics .
We got a piece of mail today and this was on the back of the envelope ...
Retired in March how will we get our back pay?
I could certainly live without DeJoy being plastered on the front of your newsletter and a two-page article about him.
Just received the USPS Retiree quarterly newsletter. Article on the appointment of DeJoy looks like a press release. Does not deal with his current dismantling of our USPS. Was that because of the time this was printed?
I retired as a Mail Processing Supervisor on August 18, 1989. Today - August 22, 2020 - is the first and only copy of USPS Retiree Quarterly Newsletter I have EVER received. The cover and lead story is Louis DeJoy selected as PMG. Your article does not tell a truthful story of Mr. DeJoy's character nor does it inform us of the large money donations he has made to the Trump campaign. The entire article smells of politics. Mr. DeJoy eliminating mail sorting equipment and then stating they will not be replaced because they are not necessary is all we need to know about this person. He does not know or understand the Postal System and has no desire to do so. Mr. DeJoy is not the appropriate person to be PMG and needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
Attn. Beaumont Texas USPS employees/retirees - Charles Tick Klock asked me to post this for him: I am in Facebok jail and cannot post. Will you kindly post this on Facebook for Mike Millicans friends. Mike Millican Covid Update # 9 Kaye Millican called at 4:15. Christus St Elizabeth called and report that all on Mike's vital signs are declining. Thay expect Mike's physical life to end very soon. Kaye is unable to be with Mike. She rejoices in the knowledge that he will awake in the presence of his son, mother, and all those who have preceded him in death. The next announcement will provide you with Mike Obituary. When we pray for healing the Lord doesn't alway answer the way we would wish. Sometimes He uses this to bring his children home. Please pray for Kaye. Charles "Tick" Klock
Question: I’m retired civil service....if Trump and Dejoy get their way and dissolve the postal service..do I then lose my pension? I’m worried 😳
