Postal retirees don't get free health benefits

Success - Article sent! close

I enjoy reading the letters in the Daily Herald, and I can usually distinguish facts from rants of people who don't have all the facts, but I had to respond to a Feb. 27 letter by Nick Herman. He said postal workers get great pensions and free health insurance. I am a retired postal worker, and I can say that my health insurance premiums take more than half of my pension. Federal workers don't get free health insurance, and postal workers pay more after they retire.
