The Retirement Benefits of Post Office Pensions
With a post office pension, an individual is able to access a large portion of their pre-retirement retirement funds through the post office.
However, it’s not the same for every post office employee.
A post office worker may be eligible to participate in a pension, but it is up to them to decide if they want to participate.
The post office may require an employee to contribute at a specific amount or may not require the contribution at all.
For example, a postal worker may need to contribute to their retirement fund at a certain rate.
For more information on how much a postoffice worker needs to contribute, visit our Retirement Benefits page.
