PERF: Employees Helping Employees

The Postal Employees' Relief Fund (PERF) offers assistance to active and retired employees affected by natural disasters. The organization has provided more than 3,000 grants totaling nearly $15 million to postal employees and retirees whose homes and lives have suffered from hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, wildfires and fires.

The Postal Service and participating unions and management associations created and operate the 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Each appoints one member of PERF’s Executive Committee to handle its day-to-day operations.

Employees or retirees who are victims of a natural disaster and have experienced a significant monetary loss after insurance and other relief assistance should review PERF eligibility criteria and complete an application with supporting documentation to send to:

Postal Employees' Relief Fund
PO Box 7630
Woodbridge, VA 22195-7630
Also, victims eligible for assistance can call PERF at 202-408-1869, or send an E-Mail to
Additional information, including how to donate, is available at
