Hello, I was also seeking to get reinstated in NY. As far as I know there is not a deadline of when you can reinstate. I transferred to another federal agency in 2003 and was looking to go back to the USPS in 2006. I had to take the test again because several years went by from my initial test. Well, I did and they never did find my test scores so I gave up on trying to reinstate because I got another federal job.

Now I want to relocate to Charlotte, NC and can't find anyone to contact regarding a reinstatement. Since the USPS has taken the Internet HRO route, it is hard to reach out to anyone who may have the answers.

If there is anyone out there that knows a contact name, number, or location for reinstatement issues, please reply.

Thanks.

The answer is probably in this handbook.

Write to Human Resources, Greensboro District
NC at PO Box 27499; Greensboro, NC 27498-9700.
If you are a VET you have indifinate reinstatement rights, if less than 3 years of service, you have 3 years to be reinstated;
if more than 3 years you have indifinate reinstatement rights. Some offices can reinstate
you if you have not taken the latest series of
test but that is up to individual offices.
Give them your name, SS#, periods of service
and ask to be reinstated to whatever craft
you want to be reinstated to. No they do not
have to take reinstatements before hiring from
the register but someone with experience and a
good past record is always a good thing.

Thanks so much for the information on where to write for a reinstatement. I left the USPS because I got called to active military duty during 911 then just transferred into a federal technician slot at my base. I want to cover all my options as far as a full time job when I relocate so this is a huge start. Again, I can't thank you enough. Wink

Thank you for serving in the Military! Wink Roll Eyes Smile Winkand if you were
separated on a form 50 because you had orders
to go into the Military you have all sorts
of rights under USERRA. You may want to put that
as to the reason why you left the PO when
writing to NC.

Since you are getting a pension, I assume, then what has changed in your situation where you must return to work. Family problems? I retired at the first early out, and a lot of things are cheaper now. I've gotten a couple of last minute vacations for next to nothing. I can tell you that the early out had a letter that had to be signed and it said in very big letters that the decision was final.

you could in theory come out of retirement, there are laws covering the rehiring of a federal annuitant. Google "rehire federal retiree" and you will find all kinds of information. However, the odds of that happening now with the PO trying everything they can to get rid of people are probably between slim and none.
