Beneficiary information

The Postal Service wants to remind all workers that it is important to complete or update beneficiary information as soon as possible.

This simple task takes just a minute or two and can save a lot of heartache down the line.

The Life Changes LiteBlue page, a one-stop shop for updating employee information, makes it easy. Just click the page’s Beneficiary information item. Links to every relevant beneficiary form — whether retirement holdings, life insurance or Thrift Savings Plan — are at your fingertips.

Completing or updating this information means you get to choose who should benefit from payouts in the event of your death.

Changes of address, and updates to emergency contacts, can also be completed via LiteBlue’s Life Changes page.

The Eagle

The Postal Service has published the latest issue of The Eagle magazine and mailed it to employees’ homes.

The quarterly publication, introduced last year, provides insights into important USPS initiatives and reports on the implementation of Delivering for America, the organization’s 10-year plan to achieve financial sustainability.

The winter edition’s cover story looks at USPS Connect, a new program that provides same-day and next-day package delivery.

This issue also explores how the Postal Inspection Service uses technology in the fight against opioid abuse, as well as how technology can be used to promote the USPS brand through digital collecting and licensed merchandise.

The Eagle is also available on Newsroom, a USPS online news hub.
