Serving NALC’s retired members

NALC's Retirement Department assists retired letter carriers regarding their benefits under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS). The department also provides help and advice to survivors of retired letter carriers. The NALC director of retired members is Ron Watson.

While active letter carriers will find the CSRS and FERS annuity estimates useful along with the general information in our NALC retirement publications, they should contact Human Resources Shared Services Center at 877-477-3273 for specific answers to their questions or when preparing for retirement (see Counseling).


Retired Member Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA)

COLAThe accumulation toward the 2015 cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) for both Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) is 1.9 percent following the July 22 release of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for June 2014.

COLCPE

COLCPENALC members' donations to the Committee on Letter Carrier Political Education—the union's political action wing—are absolutely critical to help NALC fight for the future of the USPS and ensure retirement security for letter carriers and their survivors.
