NARFE Legislative Hotline Message – May 19, 2017


Speak Out! Postal Reform Bill Approved by House Oversight Committee 

NARFE strongly urges its members to contact their legislators and ask them to oppose the Postal Reform Act of 2017 in its current form. This bill forces current postal retirees onto Medicare in order to keep their federal health insurance coverage and sets a dangerous precedent for ALL federal retirees. A letter can easily be sent via the NARFE Legislative Action Center here.

NARFE believes it is wrong to change benefits once someone has already retired. Do not stand by idly as Congress tries to change postal retirees’ benefits. A change to postal benefits could easily pave the way for Congress to change benefits for the rest of the federal community.

Write your legislators today and tell them not to change postal retirees’ health benefits after they have already retired.   Are you a postal retiree who chose not to take Medicare Part B?

Tell NARFE about how this legislation would impact you and your family by sending us an email here.
