    Are you full-time or part-time? In my area part-timers have to wait a year to get benefits and 18 months for their family. Not sure about the full-timers benefits though.

    that is true under the new contract, but the contract states as long as you gain senority before august 1st of this year you do not wait a year, I still fall under the old contract, but I am just trying to find out how long that is excactly thanks

    Then I believe the old contract was 6 months for benefits.

    Wow, under our supplement (central) you have to wait 30 working days, (six calendar weeks) and you had medical. It was 6 months for dental and vision coverage, though.

    I think there is a number to call for info on that subject. Check the UPS'ers website and starting looking for numbers for HR or Benefit Information or something. I remember back when I started I called them to check when I was going to be covered so I could get a letter to drop my wife's coverage. Good luck
