  2. Is your pension through the company or the union?

    Company
     
  4. Ours is through the union. Lots of hoops to jump. I don't know why everything is such a big mystery.

    Mine is through both. Sent for an estimate, took 90 days, and file your papers 2 months before your retire date to get it started on time

    I have a question... Is there a web site we can check our pension credits... Also, is it possible to make up credits some how, and if so, how would I go about that? Thanks

    Depends on your pension fund. My local had a website that showed every pension credit.
     
  10. A pension credit is over 20k a year. And I don't think we can buy them like some public sector unions.
