- Proof of your USPS employment or income
USPS has joined more than 1,500 companies using The Work Number, an automated service that allows you to quickly — and securely — provide proof of your employment or income. You benefit from having control of the process, since you authorize access to your information. The Work Number can be used anytime, anywhere and its available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To verify employment, just give the verifier your social security number and the Postal Service employer code — 12946 — and send them to www.theworknumber.com or have them call 1-800-367-5690.

- Postal Inspectors nab DVD thief
A clerk recently pleaded guilty in federal court after he was arrested for stealing DVD movies at the Houston P&DC. Inspectors observed the clerk, a 32-year employee, placing DVD movies into a plastic grocery bag. They took him into custody and recovered the grocery bag — containing 122 DVD movies still inside their mailing envelopes — from the clerk’s vehicle. The clerk admitted stealing DVD movies from the mail for about a year. A search of his residence yielded a total of 8,177 DVD movies worth more than $117,000. -
