PERF, EAP offer assistance

Pembroke, NC, Postmaster Angela Hagans works with Postal Inspector Stephen Cohen last week in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

The Postal Employees’ Relief Fund (PERF) and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) are available to aid USPS workers affected by Hurricane Florence and other emergencies.

PERF helps postal employees and retirees whose homes were significantly damaged by natural disasters or house fires.

PERF isn’t an emergency relief organization like the American Red Cross or insurance companies that are paid to replace property. Instead, PERF provides relief grants to help qualifying individuals get re-established after a loss.

EAP helps employees and family members cope with a variety of situations, including life-altering disasters, changes at work and more routine matters.

The EAP site has more information.
