    Question on the New England Teamsters Pension Plan for Part Timers.

    My understanding is we need five calendar years in which we worked at least 750 hours to be eligible for the pension plan. Assuming I am correct with that, do those years need to be consecutive? Or can I have a break in employment and Teamsters membership in the middle of that five year period? Meaning, for example work three calendar years with over 750 hours, then leave UPS/Teamsters for a couple years, and then come back and work two calendar years with over 750 hours?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Did you get a withdraw card when you took your "break"? I would think that would be a necessary thing to do to keep you current..
