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).
Retiree Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA)
Based on the May 2013 Consumer Price Index (CPI) released June 18, the accumulation toward the 2014 retiree cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) stands at 1.1 percent.
NALC 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.
