    ​Does that include the portable pension?
     
  4. Portable pension you have to wait until the month after your last day before they will give you the money. That's what the rep I talked to said. You can request the paperwork ahead of time.

    Also congrats chargerlou! Good luck at UPS!

    ChargerLou, make sure you roll over that 401k to UPS`s 401k so you don`t get penalized. If you can`t, then at least to a IRA.

    Congratulations. I took the lump sum payout after I got fired. I never put a penny of my own money into it. I didn't care about the 20% total in taxes, early withdrawn and other fines. From the time I sent the paperwork in it took about 3.5 weeks and they sent me a check.

    Good luck and congrats bud.
     
  9. I was thinking the same thing with my pension money. I didn't put anything in there so the penalties aren't that big of a deal to me. Will be a decent amount of money to pay off a couple things.

    My 401k I'm definitely rolling into something else though.

    Lou,
    First, congrats but, exactly what type of position are you accepting at UPS?
    Aren't you just gonna be holiday help and first guy on "stand by" for years at UPS?

    thank you.. package handler 11 bucks an hour 5 hours a day. no, not seasonal. But with my experience i have a great opportunity to be driving at ups starting pay mid 20's per hour as part time status but full time hours very lucky that 4 are retiring very soon great opportunity that fed ex cant give me! will take a few years to actually be fulltime status but after 1 year my medical benefits kick in and I pay nothing unlike fedex...

    Hell, at my age, I'd take PT with them. Happy for you. I've spoken with every brown driver that would give me 5 minutes. They do have their complains but not one would trade places in my seat for a second.
