  2. It's amazing that your old ass follows me around BC

    Thought you left this little known forum??

    Obviously you aren't a man of your word.

    No family at UPS ... there was with United Parcel Service.
    That all started to change after the strike in 1997.

    Portraying a lack of integrity don't you think I'VE?
    He's just a goading troll.

    . True. The best source of information is people who have retired and can tell you the mistakes they made or how they did it the best possible way

    My retirement was seamless. The ladies at the pension fund and health fund were very helpful. The only contact I had to make with UPS was informing my boss when my last day was. $615 to cover me and the wife. Same plan but co pays and deductibles increased. She can stay on the plan when I hit 65 and mine becomes my Medicare supplement.

    Is your retiree plan an 80/20 plan?

    The strike was how many years ago and the union hourly are still paying for it?
    There's a reason there was a strike and it wasn't because the hourly trusted and had been treated well by management.

    You're confused.

    You can't be on vacation and retired at the same time

    If you take your vacations into March, you did not retire on February 1st.

    That would just be your last day worked. Your retirement date would be after your vacations were completed.

    No, because you didn't retire on February 1st. You were on vacation for 6 weeks after that.

    Now, you could retire February 1st and be paid off for your 6 weeks of vacation, if they pay them off where you are, and then collect your pension for February.


    You cannot collect a pension check while you're on vacation.

    It is not difficult to understand.

    Teamcare does not want to be in the business of Supplemental Medicare Insurance, for one reason or another.

    Your friend was dumped when he turned 65, and his wife will be dumped when she turns 65.

    Confused... is why I asked. Too many conflicting answers. I believe I will exhaust my vacation, then retire. Medical benefits will continue through May. Thanks for your input.

    My official retirement date was 6/23/18 and my last work day was in the first week of May. I scheduled my 6 weeks of vacation and remaining personal/sick days to run consecutively. My first pension check should have been 7/1/18; however, our pension fund holds the first check to make sure that UPS has made all of the contributions on my behalf. I received two checks on 8/1 and my health coverage ended 9/30.

    You're welcome.

    You will have medical benefits for all the weeks you are on vacation, and your retirement date will be the first day after your vacations end.

    My Wife and I both went into the retirement center about 6 months before and got all the info. Also make sure the retirement medical is on board. No surprises.
