EAP, PERF Can Help in Difficult Times

In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, it’s reassuring to know there are two programs available to help employees:

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Hurricanes, flooding and tornadoes cause more than physical damage — they disrupt the lives of everyone affected by them. That’s one of the reasons the USPS Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is here … to help employees and family members cope with life-changing situations like the ones brought on by hurricanes. For information or assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, call 800-EAP-4-YOU, (800-327-4968). TTY assistance is available at 877-492-7341. The EAP website is:

Postal Employees’ Relief Fund (PERF)
