when I can retire from us post office?
I am 53 years old postal employee joined in 1995 April. Because of my arthritic pain I wish to retire at the earliest and do something lighter. People say different years, 56, 59& 63. I don't care penalty. Can I retire now and get pension around $400?

Is this the United States Postal Service?
I had a mail-man who retired at the age of 85 from the US Postal Service a few years ago. Now his replacement was with us for 2 years. Now this replacement had to find another assignment because of his back problems. At this time we do not have the a regular mail deliver driver. Though I have seen the last mail-man doing another route.
Have you tried to ask for another assignment? I hear about Federal jobs being furrload all the time. I have an uncle who use to work 5 days for a government office, now its down to 4 days a week. Also since my uncle had put in FIVE years into the government he can retire if he wants to.
Can you take short or long term disability?

Are you an idiot? Ask the person in your office who handles personnel matters and find out.
If I remember correctly a person can get a disability benefit if they've been employed five years but I'm not sure about that. And a retirement benefit at age 60 with at least 5 years employment.
