Hi! Love your podcasts and videos! I’m having a hard time figuring out my best dates and options for retiring soon. I’m trying to determine when the best time would be to leave federal service with the USPS. I’m retired military, but never “bought back” my time. I’ve just began receiving my retirement pension at age 60 (retired 26 years reserves). I currently have 28 years and 3 months with the USPS and 60 years old. Should I wait until the possible 4.7% pay increase takes effect signed by Biden, wait til 62 (April 15, 2025), wait til my 30th year date (10 June 2025) and does the 1.1% only apply to me upon reaching age 62 or upon my MRA with qualifying years? – James
