Widows and Orphans

Families of the postal workers killed in last week’s murder
spree by Jennifer Sanmarco won’t be left high and dry financially,
at least for the immediate future; victims were automatically
granted U.S. Postal Service (USPS) life insurance, conferring to
beneficiaries or next of kin a payment equivalent to each victim’s
annual salary plus $2,000. Beneficiaries will also receive an
additional year’s salary under an accidental death clause.
According to a USPS spokesman, most of the victims had worked for
the postal service for more than 15 years and were earning between
$34,000 and $46,000; one was a flex-time “non-permanent” employee
earning approximately $20 per hour after nine years of service.
