    About 1 week ago was my 1 year at UPS as a part time package handler. Do I need to initiate the process of getting paperwork or whatever needs done for my insurance? Or should I wait for someone to contact me? Just not sure what I am suppose to do, I want to get it done asap because this is what I have been waiting for.

    They mailed it to me almost 2 months before I even hit 1 year If I recall correctly. Didn't have to talk to the company about anything. Check the mail piled around your house to see if maybe you missed it or didn't realize what it was.

    What did they mail you, paperwork or just your insurance card?

    Both in the same package.

    You should already have had your insurances active even before your first year hit.

    Any suggestions where I should start, since I have not received anything yet.

    HR would be my guess.

    Break your arm and go to hospital. They will then look up to see if you have coverage.

    Well I work in a pharmacy, so I can skip the arm breaking part haha. Is there one specific plan that everyone is under? I could call it myself right now.

    Congrats on making it. Makes the job a lot more worthwhile (along with the paid time off/holidays/vacations). Should have gotten your big packet and cards a few weeks ago at the latest. Nothing done on your end. Might want to log into UPSers and make sure your correct address is in your records. No other excuse to not have that to you already.

    So you literally do not have to fill anything out at all? Everything just comes to you?

    Yep, 100%. Only thing to fill out in my packet was the life insurance beneficiary sheet in case the worst happens on the job.

    So chances are I am already covered, I just need my cards?

    Better be. HR and Teamcare should be tripping over themselves to get everything to you if it was their bad. Getting 1 year packets out on time should be like tying a shoe for them as much as they do it.

    What comes in the packet in addition to the cards is important too. Explanation of benefits, Teamcare online enrollment credentials, etc etc.

    I believe I fall under the Mid-Atlantic district, I am from PA. Does anyone know if I would be under Aetna or blue cross blue shield? Any website I try to access from my work computer is blocked.
