MyFEDBenefits Answers Common Questions About USPS VERA 2018 for Federal Employees

MyFEDBenefits hosted a free Facebook Live Q&A event on Tuesday, February 27th for USPS federal employees to ask questions about early retirement and their VERA applications.

The VERA (Voluntary Early Retirement Authority) is available to USPS employees with at least 20 years of eligible service. You have until March 23, 2018 to submit retirement paperwork for a March 31 retirement date.

  • When are the deadlines for the USPS VERA 2018?
  • What are the eligibility requirements?
  • Is there a penalty for using your Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) before age 59 1/2?
  • Will I get the FERS retirement supplement if I retire early?
  • What happens if I haven’t been on my health benefits plan for the required 5 years before retirement?
  • Is the Post Office going to make this offer to any groups other than clerks and mail handlers?
