    Grats to your husband and you. I know that a UPSer's spouse deserves congrats as well. UPS is a demanding company.
    Hope you two are looking forward to spending more time together in a few years !?!?!?
    Think you can out up with him 24/7? :wink2:

    I have 36 and retirement will be coming in the next 5 yrs.
    Take care and good luck.

    Oh yeah - I could put up with him 24/7 - The question may be - Could he put up with me? :happy2: Yes, we are so looking forward to retirement. The housing market has kind of messed up our plans - but hopefully, in the not too distant future, we begin that adventure. Our motto for many years has been.... "come grow old with me - the best is yet to be...."

    As far as being a UPS spouse, yes, there have been times I have wanted to cream some of the supervisors he has had; but ironically enough - most of those are no longer with the company. For the most part, it has been a great ride! UPS has been good to us and we are very appreciative of that!

    Thanks to all of you for your congrats!

    Congratulations, but check into your pension. We had a feeder driver who had 38 years in and was eligible for Social Security too. He was losing over $20,000 a year by working. Sadly, when he finally realized this and retired, he developed a brain tumor and died within a year. Get some hobbies and enjoy life while you can.

    Thanks for the congrats - regarding pension - we have met with the representative and know what we would be getting - that isn't the issue. We want to relocate when we retire and the housing market has put a real crimp in our plans. Social Security ??? Well, he started at UPS at 22 - so he is about about 5 years shy of collecting any Social Security - hope it is still around in 5 years.... :happy-very:
