(edit)Posthuman- as in cyborg, somewhat equivalent to transhuman.

Will they have time machines?
That can be used to come back to these times where talent and money is important.
If yes, then that is pretty similar to why a traveler should have more than one currency

found definition here:
Post-humanity has been defined as a future society in which at least part of those living have capabilities substantially higher than those of the present variety of Homo sapiens, to the extent that they can no longer really be called humans. The capabilities can be physical, intellectual, emotional, or spiritual.

sounds like humans may be cattle in such a world. humans may not even be allowed to have money.

talent/creativity is necessary to progress. unless equity of talent and creativity among all persons is necessary to your idea of "post-human" then I see no idea why it would cease to be important.
and money, or a trade/barter system, is necessary in any society that must deal with limitation or scarcity of resources. so again unless your idea of "post-human" necessitates that this not be an issue it remains important.

it depends:

if the cyborgs are still goal orientated like us humans, then they will be stiving to acheive these goals, there talents will help them to do this efficiently and they would probably use money (or other form of currency, bartering for example) to build upgrades to acheive their goals more efficiently. This would lead to a market for these things and markets run on currency.
