  4. WOW

    23 years to figure things out

    just a couple more years to suck it up and retire better, unless you are there already.... pension wise

    I mean, I'm glad you are content, but you have run a marathon and can see the finish line

    seems like a waste

    Good Luck

    I don't get it

    so you "wasted" 23 years but couldn't waste 2 more for some pension and benefits?

    I don't know where you guys work, but in NY, he would have to go to the age of 57 no matter when he started. If he's part-time, 65. No math here. No adding this to that and subtract your mother's age to get your retirement age. So, if he started at 18, add 23, you get 41. 57-41=16 more years until retirement. That's full-time. Part-time 65-41= 24 more years. How's that sound to ya?

    and she can add very nice, lol

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    menotyou, the recently approved pension rehab plan has a minimum retirement age of 55, not 57.

    Paid over, while I do think that you were short-sighted in your decision, the only opinions that matter are those of your family. Good luck.

    With 23 years in he is probably vested to a certain degree and can defer his pension till retirement age. He has a job lined up and sounds like he dosen't need any disbursment right now. Wasted seems like a strong term, if he is debt free this is a great move if he hates UPS. I kinda wish more hourly (and management) who hate it would get out, if for no other reason as to not have to listen to the complaining.

    Congratulations, you are brave and wise. I have two years left to pension and I will go the day I am able. The company now operates knowing the fear it can leverage against its employees, lower management on down. Life is too short and I wish I had the courage you have or the option for other employment. Enjoy your life !!!

    Congratulations! Something tells me that there will be more just like you in the not too distant future. I'll admit the thought has crossed my mind a time or two. I haven't met a person yet who has left this company and not felt is was the best thing they ever did. Even if they had to take a lesser paying job and scale back their lifestyle. Kinda make ya wonder.

    Management always says how much we make justifies it, how many people are lined up for our jobs, they haven't failed to pay us this week, pick your saying. Yet if they realized we're not in the "Best Places to Work" category. You would think it would click upstairs that, maybe it's something OTHER than pay that drives people to work harder for them!

    sounds like your local really dropped the ball, i think working till 57 for UPS would literally destroy your body..
