Hello My Fellow Retired Brothers and Sisters,

Well, Well, Well, what a Summer it has been!!  I sure hope y’all have survived and did not suffer any damage from the hurricane.

However, if you did suffer any damage, there are some resources available on the NALC.ORG website.  Specifically, you will find Hurricane Harvey Updates in the latest news section of the NALC Website.  Plus, this is also available on the NALC app available to download on your smart phone, which was introduced at the National Convention in Los Angeles last year.

Additionally, you may download the PERF Application from the NALC Website, which is available to Retirees, as explained in the Eligibility Criteria that states:

Applicant must provide documentation that they are (1) a current employee of the United States Postal Service or (2) a retired USPS employee, at the time of the disaster or house fire.

I am sure y’all are already aware of and have visited the FEMA Website (, but here is a link you may use to go directly. 

On a lighter note, I have been made aware of an opportunity to make a little extra money with a job in Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops.  There is a National Hiring Event, Wednesday, October 18, after you apply in advance at BASSPRO.COM/CAREERS.  Keep in mind, I know nothing about this opportunity, I am just passing along the information.

If you have any questions about your retirement or need to change anything, you may call the Office of Personnel Management at 1-888-767-6738, or you may go to the OPM Website ( to register for online access with your CSA Number.

Lastly, it was announced at my Branch Meeting the locations for the following National Conventions: 

2020 – Hawaii

   2022 – Chicago 

I’m starting to save up now!!  HaHaHa!!! 

As always, I am here to help y’all with whatever I can.  If you need to contact me, just call 281-546-7176, which is my cell phone.  I do not have cell service where I live, but I do forward my cell phone to our landline at home.
