    I have over 30 years combined but not yet 55 years old to get healthcare. Unexpected health reasons I may not be able to return to work..The pension calculator has my pension difference about $800 if I retire at 53 vs 55. I knew healthcare was an issue, why such a huge financial difference ?? Central states/ Company pension. Is 55 a benchmark for pension too ?

    I'm not in central states but under our plan, if you are forced to retire early due to a medical issue you are still entitled to your full pension, I believe you just need to get a disability rating from the SSA to qualify.
  4. Because that's two years more they would have to pay out your pension at age 53 versus age 55

    Are you sure your part time years count....Did you have enough hours each part time year to get you to a 30 year mark ?

    Also the pension (UPS/Teamster) goes up by contract in (August? ) 2020. No increase in 2019.

    I didn’t think they hired people that young. I would have guessed 18 minimum.

    Up until a few years ago Mn. always had people willing to work. This latest generation is something else. For the most part just a bunch of entitled pricks.

    I know here (west) part time years count. The contribution towards the pension is a little less for part time, but if you only do a few p/t years, the difference over 30+ years makes little difference. I did 31yrs, 3 p/t.
