Benefits Question?

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by HANGINGIN4BENEFITS, May 17, 2012.



    I was wondering when do you get benefits when starting out at UPS. Medical, Dental, and Vision. I was hearing they come in at different times.

    Also how much does it cost to add your spouse and a child to the insurance?

    Benefits for the employee kick in after the first year of employment and 18 months for your family (at no cost).

    What certain degree is that. I don't pay a dime for anything. My local even reimburses me for any prescription co-pays or out pocket cost for vision up to $600 a year.

    The certain degree he is talking about is that our benefits are part of our total compensation and if we didn't have the benefits we would make a higher hourly wage.

    If we didn't have benefits the only people that would be making more money would be the stock holders...
