    I understand.
    My friend wanted to go on medicare and have teamsters insurance like his wife is getting be his secondary because it's better than most crap supplemental's that don't cover vision or dental.

    This is really a simple proposal that, apparently, is difficult to understand.

    So...Can you receive a pension check while on your vacation when you retire?
    My vacation re-populates on 1/23. I want to retire Feb 1st. If I take my last 6 weeks of vacation into march, would I be able to receive my first pension check Feb 1st? No one has been able to give me a direct answer.

    That lifetime cap is the biggest difference with retiree plans. Caps supposedly ended with new rules after Obamacare - but those didn't apply to retirees.

    My cousin works in the Health care Industry. When I told him I have a cap,he could not believe it. Unions went to Obama and asked for the exception for Retirees. It is so true that when you retire, NOBODY wants you on the books...including the Teamsters..

    and you need to decide which Medicare supplements to get.
  11. That has changed a lot over the last decade

    Nope. The pension fund would have to wait until you are completely off the books before issuing your first check(s)----you would get both Feb and Mar on Mar 1st.

    Dear "Retiring Jan. 1st,
    Due to the fact that you are the first person to ever retire from UPS all I can say is welcome to the club. Everyone who retires is treated like they are the first so good luck getting a straight answer out of anyone --Teamsters or Company.

    I doubt you have sources to prove every single retiree insurance plan in America kicks you off when you are eligible for Medicare.

    I think @Old Man Jingles said his didn't. If I recall correctly.

    Nope ... In fact, I was kicked off UPS Retiree Healthcare Plan a month before I turned 65.

    And I don't talk to @Maple Grove MN Driver anyway! :wink-very:
