How To Contribute To COLCPE Using PostalEASE

Letter Carriers can now contribute directly to COLCPE (NALC’s Committee on Letter Carrier Political Education) from their paychecks using the Postal Service’s PostalEASE. Through PostalEASE you can designate COLCPE as one of your two* payroll “allotments”.

*If you already have two allotments, you must cancel one to contribute to COLCPE through PostalEASE. To do so, follow the instructions below but instead of selecting “3” to add a new allotment, select “2” to cancel an allotment.”

  1. Be sure you know your 4-digit USPS Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you cannot remember your PIN number, call PostalEASE at 1-877-4PS-EASE, select “1”, enter your Social Security Number, select “1” to hear information about your PIN, and select “2” to have your PIN mailed to you.
  2. Create your own Account Number by inserting in the spaces below the first seven digits of the ID number that appears above your name on the back cover of your Postal Record.
