USPS Seeks Retirees for Peak Season

Do you know a postal retiree? Would they like to make some extra money for the holidays, a.k.a. peak season? If so, we’re asking your help in spreading the word about this exciting opportunity.

During the last holiday season, the Postal Service proved it was the package-delivery business of choice --- one that could meet customer’s delivery demands in a timely and efficient manner.  To help make that happen again this year, the Postal Service is offering a special employment opportunity for the 2016 holiday season.

We will be staffing postal facilities throughout the South Florida District with temporary employees during the upcoming 2016 holiday season, in order to meet the mail processing and delivery needs for the anticipated increased package and mail delivery business. Our retired postal employees have the knowledge, community connection, and ability to provide great service, which makes them excellent candidates for reemployment with the Postal Service in holiday term positions, including:

 Holiday Clerk Assistant (HCA) -- Application period  August 2 - 19

Retired postal employees who are eligible for reemployment should have already received a letter from the Postal Service with details on how to apply. If you know someone who did not receive a letter and is interested, they can apply and HRSSC (Shared Services) will determine their eligibility. 

Posting dates and special conditions apply to each temporary position being offered, so interested annuitants should be sure to check their letter, or simply follow these instructions:

Open a web browser and type; under USPS Account, click “Search Now”; in the keywords field type *Annuitant* exactly as shown; select the “State” to narrow your search results; click “Start” and this will display the jobs. 

It’s never too early to start planning for our busiest time of year.  Reemploying retired postal employees helps the Postal Service, the annuitant, and especially our customers, who gain the benefit of the experience and knowledge of our postal retirees.  Encourage retirees you know to apply today and help us be ready for our special time of the year.
