  1. Getting my ducks in a row with the local. Just wondering how much notice to give UPS before my last day... What is the best way to go?

    They'll know before you know.
    2 weeks and let them know you aren't looking for any 10 hours dispatches.

    Areyoukiddinme best 2 weeks ever

    i let center manager know about a month before i started the pension paper work then filed the paper work and took my 8 weeks of vacation, it still took over a month for ups to talk to the pension office. so start early and you may need to be a little forceful with HR to get things moving on their side.

    I started the process 6 months before I retired and my center manager knew it. At that time we still
    had good UPS health care so I made sure she made sure everything was in order. Now with
    Teamcare, who knows.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Teamcare has nothing to do with the retirement process.

    Well when drivers retire now, don't they have Teamcare?

    If I wanted to keep the same insurance, dental, vision, prescription, it cost me $200/month from my pension, $200/month more for my wife. I went on medicare Oct 1, and since once you go on medicare, you can't receive our insurance, I got a $200/month raise. Still paying for wife, however.

    We have two drivers going through the process right now so I am getting a crash course on Retirement 101. In our local we keep our current benefits package----$150/month for the retiree and an additional $150/month for the spouse. Co-pays are double.

    When I retired I called Teamcare to let them know I was ending my employment. Was told UPS would let them know of change in employment status. Then I received my Central States H/w fund coupon book in the mail. I didn't call anyone from Central States H/W fund. Right now it's 200.00 for my wife and I then 300.00 or both of us in 2016. In the transition period I was told there was still coverage although I didn't need to use it.

    Really and sincerely, sorry to hear that. I thought is wasn't quite a done deal yet. I thought it was being petitioned still. Although, I think it will be passed.
    Were you cut from approx $3000? I'm thinking this opens the door for anything, and everything.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Well yeah. If a pension fund is broke I would say everything is on the table.

    Plus prescriptions are more and there is a deductible you have to meet and you are responsible for 20% of the balance of any visit and/or procedure.
