    The husband of a UPS retiree contacted me this morning looking for contact information that I don't have.

    His wife retired from UPS, and has now passed away. Does anyone have any info about who he should contact and what he needs to do as far as notifying UPS?

    If we know where she worked someone here may be able to pm you a local #. Just a thought. If not maybe call the 1-800 # and see if they can notify the center she worked in. I assume this is strictly to notify her co-workers and doesn't have to do with her retirement payments?

    I would call the 1800 number and have them put her through to HR in her area.

    I don't know his exact situation but the 800 number is a good idea in any case. I'll suggest that he try that.

    He will need to contact the local Union and most likely the plan administrator. That number should be available thru the local Union.

    Maybe too obvious, and I may delete the contact as I walk out the door my last day, but has he checked her cell phone?

    I don't have much info about this. The email I received was from a fellow that said that his wife had retired from UPS and had died on Christmas day. All he asked who to contact at UPS to notify them of her death. I don't know any more than that.

    I felt really bad for the guy. Expressed my condolences and suggested that he contact the 800# and have them transfer him to the local human resources dept so they could help him determine what else he needed to do.

    Since I never heard back from him I assume that he was able to find the info he was looking for through them.

    Thank you for your suggestions. If I hear back from him I'll send him a link to this thread.

    There's a good chance that if he contacted you he may be reading post's here.
