OPM backlog affecting recent postal retiree.
Mt. Vernon, OH —
A Mt. Vernon veteran who devoted three decades to the U.S. Postal Service as a mail carrier says he is now receiving only about half his pension check from the federal government.
Jon Minard served in Vietnam, losing an eye to a grenade, before returning home and working at the U.S.P.S. delivering mail for thirty years. He worked in Dublin before eventually moving to Mt. Vernon.
When Minard retired last August, he expected his pension check to be there. Instead, he says he is only receiving a little more than half of the $2500 he is owed.
Minard says it is a frustrating chapter to an agency he had always been able to rely on.
