    There is a portal in the upsers.com, Total Rewards. When the HR person walks you thru it the 1st time to estimate your retirement health care, they cannot tell you if the total you will pay after your DDB credits is only for yourself or for both you and your spouse. Does anyone out there know? Mine comes up at over $1000 a month for both of us and it just seems alot.

    Your healthcare benefit is for you and your spouse as long as you can produce birth certificates and a marriage license at 90 days before retirement.
    The amount seems about right.
    Your DDB credits should pay for it if you have been here for 30 years or so.
    The years before 1991 pay $750 / yr of service and $250 for 1991 and after.
    UPS takes a 30 year range with the highest coverage.

    From the UPS thread about UPS Health Care...

    There's a lot of griping about the rising cost of health care......It's the same for everybody.....not just union people......mgmt will see heavy increases too. Very one sided.........everyone is affected....not everyone is a union member.

    In 2012, according to an annual survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance averaged $5,615 a year for single coverage and $15,745 for family coverage. The employee’s share of the premium averaged $951 for individual coverage and more than four times as much, $4,316, for family coverage.

    Yep, it's an issue for all of us.
