    I worked part-time for 17 years then full-time 10 so far at UPS. I am having a hard time figuring out pensions. I have a UPS pension for my part-time, I think. And I have a Central States pension for my full-time years, I think. Do these years combine for one pension? Or do I have to earn a separate pension for Central States?

    i think its 17/2 +10+ your age. When the total reaches 72 isnt it? I dont know exactly, because it is still so far away

    Don't hold me to this, because I have never gotten the same answer twice...
    You can combine your f/t and p/t years toward 30 and out--So, you have 3 years to go. You will get two pension checks--One from UPS and one from the union. However, depending on your age, I am going to guess that the combined pensions would be anywhere from $1000 to $2000 per month...

    Same problem here, 14 years f/t under UPS retirement plan and 20 yrs with Central Sucks, OOPS I mean Central States. You must be 57 for benefits from either.10 to go for Central States, that is 44 years with Brown, I don't think my body will last that long. Maybe they will let me mount my walker on the back bumper.:mad:

    UPS and Central States have a reciprocal agreement so for easy math say you work 20yrs PT and 10yrs FT at age 62? or 63? you would draw 2/3rds of a PT 30yr pension from UPS and 1/3rd of a 30yr pension from Central States. This was how it was explained to me.

    Each contract is different.

    Under ours, instead of buying my last years out, I could have done the combining route. But over the long haul, combining years would have cost me money after 12 or 13 years. So I opted for straight teamster retirement, with the UPS part of my service paying me starting at 55 I think. I could start drawing the reduced pension from UPS right now, but the hit would be too hard.

    You're stuck. When you die, we just send you to CACH.
