    Can anyone tell me how your company paid pension works and when it was put in place?

    The current pension is a PPA portable pension account. It has been in place approximately eight years. The contribution level is dependent upon the combined total of age and years of service. I'm not certain but I think the entry level is three percent of gross wages. The upper limit is six percent when age and years of service equal 70.

    Portable Pension Account Compensation Credits

    Age + years of credited service for benefit accrual (as of May 31 of prior plan year)

    Compensation credit (based on prior
    calendar-year eligible earnings)


    Less than 55=3%

    55 – 64=4%

    65 – 74=5%

    75 or over=6%

    Didn't those that were at Viking with pension contributions carry over to the FEDEX plan? My contribution years at FEDEX are more than I have with the company unless I add the time with Spartan Express (Viking).

    Can't speak to the Viking plan, other than it was said to be superior.

    Our resident retired Viking guy will be along shortly, I suspect.

    Who needs TP?
    PPA started in 2008. Watkins and AF years of service are counted for contribution rate. But of course I will defer to the all knowing ST who will surely pronounce that I hate what I'm talking about.

    If you hate talking so much, why do you never shut up?
