I'm a loader getting close to a year.
A year from your hire date.
In most instances, isn't the hire date and seniority date one in the same?
It's been 28 years, but if memory serves, once I made my 30 days my seniority date reverted back to the first day I worked?
Off street hires after the vacation replacement period would be an exception in the Central Region.
Yes...that is correct. But sometimes it takes PTers months to make book...if they get sent home a lot.
If there 30 isn't in the first 90 days their seniority date changes.
Used to be 30 days. So sad.

Benefits are expensive.
I would imagine that sometime before you are eligible, you will receive insurance cards in the mail with the local H&W number. You should be able to call that number and find out your exact date of eligibility.
You want to find out from the plan administrators as they are the ones cutting the checks. If you go by what the steward says or someone on this board and they are wrong, you could very well end up paying for anything that you may incur before you are eligible.
