    Does anyone know if you get paid for a grandparent's death? I plan on taking 2 days off. I looked at the master agreement and it looks like I should get paid, but I just want to make sure.

    You get 3 days don't you? but only if it is a direct relation, not a step-. Sorry couldnt figure how to word that right?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The number of days that you get off depend upon the relationship of the deceased. Don't you have a copy of the contract? If so, look under "funeral leave" and you will find out all you need to know but, as Cement said, I also believe that it is 3 days.

    When my Father-In-Law passed away 7 months ago, I got paid for the 2 days I was off.

    You get 4 days paid leave. I just went through the same thing a month ago. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family.

    You get a travel day also, if the funeral is over 150 miles away.
