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).

Cost-of-Living Raises Set for September 2, 2017

Pursuant to the release of the July 2017 Consumer Price Index - Urban Wage and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), and in accordance with Article 9.1.E , the third COLA adjustment of the 2015-2018 National Agreement will result in a $270 increase for eligible rural carriers. This COLA adjustment will be effective September 2, 2017, (PP 19-2017).

All COLA adjustments are based on a 40-hour evaluation with proportional application to those route evaluations over 40 hours. The increase will appear in paychecks dated September 22, 2017.

NOTE: For RCA/RCR employees on rolls prior to August 11, 2012, an amount equal to the COLA paid to full-time rural carriers on an hourly basis under the 2015-2018 Agreement will be rolled into RCA/RCR hourly rates during the first full pay period of August 2018. In lieu of COLA, the hourly rate for RCAs hired on or after August 11, 2012, shall include additional increases of 1.0% effective November 14, 2015; 1.0% effective November 26, 2016; and 1.0% effective November 25, 2017.
