First, thank you for your interest. Specific factors: Age: 65 UPS Location: Edison, NJ (Teamsters Local 177) Previous Position: Part-time hourly package handler; vastly Isle sorter, a lot small sort, a little loading/unloading (to me, loading the hardest). Years Worked: 8 (1982-1990); quit at 42 Additional Info: I contacted UPS's Atlanta office and there will be the standard pension information send within 30 days. I'm very curious to get any feedback to either increase my anticipation -- or temper it -- as I await the numbers. The main question is; at 65 last month (can pass for 45 ), will I have a buyout option as per a contract from the 1980s (two contracts during my stay)? My second question is; based on the information above, what monthly amount will I receive? I don't expect a specific answer to either of course. Speculation and similar experiences are welcome. Thanks to anyone who cares to respond in advance. John PS The dental work alone, as a benefit, was well worth it. The above will be gravy. I'm not sure; just wondering if, relatively, the benefits were better in the 1980s?
