I worked ups for thirty-one years and found out last week that the monthly health premium will increase from $50.00 a month to a whopping $495.00 per month/ 10 times more!!!! I'm blogging this to inform those thinking of retiring from ups to be prepared!!! I have been retired for nine years and i draw a pension from ups. About 1/4 of that per month will go towards paying the premium!! Ups sent this letter only to the retirees. Beware, active workers will be next! Just another ploy by ups. Please keep this in mind doing the next contract. Facts: 1)you only=$247.50 per month 2)you plus spouse=$495.00 3)you plus children=$495.00 4)you plus family=$742.50 think about it!! Burnt out upser.
