Non Career Employees
Are You a Non-Career Postal Employee?
The Postal Service hires non-career employees to supplement its regular workforce and reduce staffing costs.
Non-career employees are supposed to be temporary workers who do not receive the same employee benefits as career employees, are not always guaranteed a set schedule, and can work from one to seven days per week.
These employees may often stay in this “temporary” status for extended periods of time and even several years. While in this status many of the benefits provided to career employees, such as Group Life Insurance, the Thrift Savings Plan, and the Pension Plan, are not available to non-career employees, however, this does not mean they should wait to begin assembling their retirement and insurance plan.
We can help educate non-career postal employees on alternate life insurance with living benefits and tax-free savings so you can get a jump start on having these much-needed benefits during your non-career period.
Additionally, we can educate you on how to opt into your Optional Group Life Insurance and how to utilize the Thrift Savings Plan correctly to take advantage of the government match that is available when you start your “career” status.
Our agents and advisors are trained to help postal non-career employees to get started on putting the tools in place to begin building your retirement and life insurance plan.
