    Ok, I'm not sure if anyone on this board can help me. My husband was a Teamster at ABF, however he has been disabled for over 2 years. We had not looked at what his 'supposed' retirement pension would be since before he became disabled. He had 15 years in so he is fully vested. Does anyone have a clue how we could find or calculate what he would be receiving when he turns 65? Obviously, they pulled the pension calculator off the webpage quite a while back I'm assuming. If anyone could offer any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    feistY

    papejr, you have given great advice. She also needs to let them know of her or his correct mailing address and email as well as telephone. She should have received a letter back in October of 2015 on this matter. The fact she did not receive this is a sure indication that she fell through the cracks. She is most likely on the Terminated / Vested list. Many questions need to be asked of her. Was he always at ABF? Is he on a disability? What kind of a disability? Will he ever be able to go back to work?. This is a very special case and needs the advice of an expert like you gave her. Thanks for your help and don't be a stranger to the boards. :1036316054:

    Yes, ESP, papejr gave great advice. A phone call was made to Mr. Nelson earlier this week and we received the information that we needed about disability and the amount for his (eventual) retirement. I believe we did receive a letter last year but could not locate it. He was found by his SS#. My husband had only worked at ABF for his 15 years. He is completely disabled and will not ever return to work unfortunately. It was certainly not what he wanted to do but there was no choice. Thanks again for leading us in the right direction to the correct person.
