Wearing unevenly, so one side (probably the side with the screech-tab) is thinner so the tab starts making noise sooner.
"I was told..." - I guess that means you don't do your own DIY work? Since I do my own work, my feeling is to look at the actual amount of remaining brake pad, to judge how urgent the job is. That means getting the wheel off & having a look myself. I'm tempted to say there's time to order parts & then pick a convenient time for the work. But that's from the viewpoint of doing the job myself. You can't keep going back to have your mechanic look at the brake pads, just to delay the inevitable job.
And you say "both rear pads"... I'd do the whole rear axle, that's 4 pads. Seems like if one pad is wearing uneven, or one of the 4 pads is worn much different than the rest, that means the slide pins or the caliper bracket is not working nicely and should be cleaned up.
