Planning my departure from UPS and getting information from multiple sources. Can't hurt to ask here too. I know I must choose one of 12 dates to be my pension effective date......any 1st of the month. Many choose to follow this date with whatever vacation time still left on the books, thus receiving their 1st pension check followed by weeks of vacation pay. What if I selected Dec 1 as my date followed by 6 weeks of vacation pay, wouldn't I still be considered on the books and benefit from UPS holiday pay over Xmas and New Year? If not, it's still uplifting to wave bye-bye just before peak !!!
