The USPS announced in early March it was offering voluntary early retirement to eligible non-union administrative employees as it worked to restructure the organization after a tumultuous year.
This does not apply to those who process and deliver the mail, USPS spokesperson Dave Partenheimer told FOX Business.
The offers were a way to help the agency avoid a "reduction in force." The offers, which don't include a buyout incentive, have an effective date of April 30, according to the USPS.
