Holiday news, open season reminders

The USPS Holiday Newsroom site has fans everywhere — even the North Pole.

Holiday news. Employees and customers looking for holiday information can find it all in one place: the online USPS Holiday Newsroom.

Visitors to the site will find the Postal Service’s holiday news releases, Link stories and suggested mail-by dates.

Other resources include holiday fact sheets, videos, stamps, postmarks and Operation Santa and Letters from Santa materials.

The interactive site also allows users to color the scenery and make it “snow” on the page.

Open season hub. The Postal Service is reminding employees that the Open Season LiteBlue page is their hub for everything they need to find the right health plan this year.

You can go to the page to access 2018 health plan brochures, information on health plan types, and instructions on updating your benefits.

You can also access other resources like health plan premiums, fact sheets and FAQs.

The page also has a link to Checkbook’s Guide to Health Plans, which allows you to compare health plan rates, coverage details, customer survey feedback and more.

If you have questions regarding open season, call the HR Shared Service Center at 877-477-3273 (select option 5). The TTY number is 866-260-7507.
