Reemployed Annuitants


Generally speaking, the treatment of a retiree's annuity and pay upon reemployment in the Federal Government depends upon whether he or she retired on the basis of a regular, involuntary, or disability retirement. Potential benefits that may be earned as a result of the reemployment service depend primarily on the length of such service.

Some details on Reemployed Annuitants may be found in a PDF file at OPM's Web Site by clicking here.

If you have questions regarding how this can affect you, feel free to post the quesitons here. Or perhaps you have been through this process before and can offer some helpful suggestions...please share.

I took a disability retirement effective Jan 2005 due to failed kidney transplant. I retired as a Level 22 station manager. I was initially hired as a city carrier Sept 1988 with a 10 point 100% disabled vet pref with already having my first transplant. I received another transplant in Dec. 2005 and have been working part-time for 2 1/2 years. I want to explore reinstatement due to the fact my social security "trial work period" ending soon and I will lose my SS benefits and pay if I continue working. I was making $68,000 when I left he PO and want to make that again. I've read a lot about reinstatement and most people say, "why give up free money?" Well, I'm only getting $1,000/mo from the PO and I want to work! I'm 45 years old and am not ready to sit at home being satisfied with what I'm making. Can anybody give me advise?

You went on disability retirement? or OWCP?
I have never heard of a "trial period by SS"
were you under FERS and receiving Supplements
Payments because SS did not approve you for
disability retirement; and it is not the PO
who pays for disability retirement, OPM does
and if on disability retirement and you are
"found recovered" which you will have to
show OPM some medical information that you
are recovered; the PO does not have to
reinstate you, they will have to give you
priority consideration but no, they will
not reinstate you to your Station Manager
Job and you need to give us more information
as to "what trial period SS" gave you, how
old you are, your scenario is rather short.

I went out on a disability retirement. I kept working while on dialysis for 8 months, then applied, got approved Jan 2005. I did not file OWCP because my kidney condition pre-existed my postal employment and was Military Service connected. Social Security approved my disability right away because they couldn't argue the fact that I was on dialysis. I never received supplement payments (I don't even know what that is), and, yes I was under FERS. I realize I will not be reinstated to a station manager position and I also realize OPM pays me. Heck, I will carry mail for $68,000/yr! Social Security has a return to work program in which they allow you 36 months to work. After the first 30 days, you can earn no more than $900/mo and still keep your payments and medicare. I am nearing this deadline. If I continue to work, for whatever pay, my SS stops. If I quit working and tell SS that I've stopped, then my benefits continue. I am 45 years old

I would like to know what does it mean by "Nature of action code-902" in PS FORM 50 (Notification OfPersonnal Action). In NOA it is mentioned that "CHANGE POSITION INFORMATION". what does it mean?

Thanks

NOA Code 902 on your Form 50 is explained to you
right on the form 50 and next to the NOA 902.

I worked for the postal service for 5 years. I was offered disability retirement for mental health problems and was retired and FERS annuity.

However, 4 years after being retired it was discovered that I did not have any mental health problems but that of a large brain tumor. It was removed and my doctor's determined that I had recovered and was misdiagnosed by postal physicians.

U.S. OPM found me recovered. I brought this matter too the attention of the postal service but too no avail. What do I need too do??

What I am going to tell you is not good news but
maybe you can use it. While OPM found you recovered and the PO is under no obligation
to take you back, they do have to give you
priority consideration. Now, put it in a nice
letter to the Area VP; District Manager, Manager, Human Resources (District and Area) that
you want to be reinstated. Are you a Veteran?
Wait at least 10 days to see if you get an
answer and what they say; let me know and we
will go from there. At least your medical
problem has been solved and what office did you
work out of and what Area?

Thanks a lot ... you have provided me with great news and wisdom. Now, what if I put my name in a letter and address it in a nice letter to the Area VP; District Manager, Manager, Human Resources (District and Area) that I want to be reinstated, particularly at my former place of employment (in a Village town nearby) but after years of my request I that I have made I have heard nothing from the U.S. postal service? What should I do??

I have finally gotten a hold of the Area District Manager. He has submitted the following:

"Requests for reemployment/reinstatement should be made to the installation head of the facility to which you would like to be employed. As a former employee and annuitant you would be eligible for consideration for employment when a vacancy occurs in the installation and management must fill the vacancy utilizing external recruitment sources."

He has also provided me with the postmaster email address and as such I have submitted my request to him but I have not received any response.

As a 10-point veteran, should I get more consideration?
