New EMA Rate - Effective January 6, 2018 (Pay Period 02-2018)

On December 13, 2017, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the November 2017 Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) which established the Private Transportation Index at 199.447, an increase from the August 2017 Index of 196.076. Therefore, the Equipment Maintenance Allowance (EMA) for rural carriers will increase by 2.0¢ to 70.0¢ per mile. This adjustment includes a 0.5 cent base rate increase per the terms of Article 9.2.J.3.a of the 2015-2018 Collective Bargaining Agreement.

This EMA rate will be effective January 6, 2018 (Pay Period 02-2018).

The full EMA schedules will be posted on the Rural Carrier EMA Rate Schedule page when available

Donate to the Postal Employees’ Relief Fund (PERF)

Rural letter carriers have always come to the call to help our brother and sisters through hard times. Since shipping and distributing goods in the affected area is nearly impossible, we are asking that you donate money to allow agencies on the ground to spend it as needed as this is the best immediate thing you can do to help those in need. You can donate through the Postal Employees Relief Fund. The link is provided below. Any donation, no matter the amount, is needed for our postal families. Please give today!

------------------------------------------------------

Make an immediate donation:

Go to postalrelief.com with your credit card or send a check to:
PERF
P.O. Box 7630
Woodbridge, VA 22195-7630

------------------------------------------------------

From tornadoes to floods and winter storms, many parts of the nation are experiencing extreme weather. The Postal Service is reminding employees they can turn to the Postal Employees Relief Fund (PERF). The fund helps postal employees and retirees whose homes were significantly damaged by natural disasters or house fires.

PERF is not an emergency relief or immediate needs replacement agency, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Red Cross or insurance companies that are paid to replace property. Rather, PERF (part of the Combined Federal Campaign) provides relief grants to help qualifying individuals get re-established after a loss, based on an application process.

Open season dates: Oct. 2, 2017, through Jan. 12, 2018. Choose to help your fellow postal employees by designating PERF as your contribution choice—CFC #10268.

Retired postal employees also can designate PERF as a contribution choice through their annuity checks—CFC #10268.

You also may make a contribution via personal check (a receipt for your tax-deductible donation will be mailed to you).
