Retiring employees can use the Combined Federal Campaign’s online pledge system to ensure their contributions continue after they leave USPS.

The Postal Service wants employees who plan to retire before Aug. 2 to know they can still support the Combined Federal Campaign after they leave the organization.

Retiring employees’ donations to the 2019-20 campaign, also known as the CFC, end when they receive their last paycheck.

However, employees can ensure their pledges continue through the end of the year by registering through the online pledge system as a federal retiree.

Two options are available:

• Retirees can set up automatic withdrawals from a postal annuity, using their Social Security number.

• Retirees can also make a one-time payment or set up a recurring bank account withdrawal or credit card charge. A Social Security number is not required for this option.

After Aug. 1, the pledging system will close for donations to prepare for the start of the 2020-21 charity drive.

The CFC allows federal employees, retirees and contractors to contribute to charitable organizations during campaigns that begin each fall.
