FEHB Open Season - Now is the time to make changes to your Health Dental and Vision plans.

Here is a link that I stumbled upon that allows you to compare the plans all at once. You can sort by cost, coverage, etc. Pretty useful. Its straight off the LiteBlue website, but its not really affiliated with USPS. Log into Lite Blue Here - Then come back and click on This Link to be taken to "Consumers Checkbook - Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees" - This is FREE as long as you log in and go through Lite Blue. I like it because it allows you to compare and contrast lots of different info all on one site - From Dental and Vision, to the Health Plans. Give careful consideration to the APWU Plans. They are very competitive in pricing!

Missed Retro Pay Form

Click HERE

Please follow the above link if you were skipped on your retroactive raise payment. We have had a couple members reach out because they received no payment. This payment would have been visible on the paycheck we received 9/4/2020. There would have been roughly 11 adjustments. If you were employed as an APWU represented craft employee during 2018, 2019 and/or through about March 2020, you should have received something. Please contact a steward with questions. This is because our contract expired in 2018 but wasnt settled until 2020. PSEs and Career employees were affected. Use the above form and FAX it to the union office for assistance. Thanks!
