I would never attempt to start this job at that age. You’re going to speed up the destruction of your body. It’s not like he’s been used to doing it for a couple decades, and his body is conditioned to it. A 52 year old body starting from scratch as a driver? Tall order.
But hey, good luck.
Aye, respect.

Good morning all, I am a relative new employee at UPS and was wondering how i start contributing to the Teamsters pension plan? Is there paperwork that needs to be filled out? Or are you automatically enrolled into the pension plan after joining the union? I am a proud member of the Local 174 in the Seattle, WA area.
You're in the Western pension.

You're JC28 and Western Region on teamsters supp.

You can download them here and read about your pension.


This is what JC28 says the rest would be in Article 30 of the Western Region.

Never know man, I started this job at 39 and it was easier on me than the jobs I had for almost 20 years prior. It's all relative.

I can't even imagine starting this job at age 52!

At 52, I had already been retired from UPS almost 3 years.

More power to you! It wouldn't have been anything I would have ever done!

NOT saying it can't be done! Careful you don't hurt your self for life as many have.

Best of Luck!
