NARFE: Panel Shows Support For Postal Retiree Health Benefit Changes

By John Hatton – April 2017
Legislation that seeks to repair the finances of the United States Postal Service (USPS) garnered broad bipartisan support among leaders and members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the face of strong opposition from NARFE.

NARFE has suggested a reasonable alternative to allow many retirees to add Medicare, but to preserve choice, through an opt-out for postal retirees who do not wish to pay additional premiums for additional health coverage.

Unfortunately, members of the committee appear determined to press forward with the proposal without changes.
