I worked for Fedex for about 5 and a half years and quit about 18 years ago. For a while, I got pension statements, but haven't gotten anything in maybe 10-12 years.

I realize it's my responsibility to keep up with this pension, but I can't even figure out who to contact to get my address updated. Does my pension even still exist (granted, it wasn't much...but still)?

Any help/contact info would be appreciated. Thanks.

As Far as your pension...you can't touch your traditional pension until 55 and if you take it early, you will get less. If you have a 401k I believe you can take some of it out under certain conditions such as medical,education and what is called hardship withdrawal and being evicted would fall under that category.
As far as pension and retirement call (877) 963 - 3339 or for written inquires : FedEx Retirement Service Center;PO Box 980 Deerfield,IL 60015

FedEx will never go union! I know from inside knowledge they have groups from management that meet to discuss how to keep union out. The members in these groups are kept secret from employees and if they get word your talking union....your out on your can!!!

I've been at fdx for many of yrs and most if not all senior employees{25yrs up} worry about life after fdx because we all know the retirement that we get wont cover 1/4 of our living expenses...sure social security will help but working for 30-35 yrs at one place u would think it would be enough to make your retirement more comfortable...not at dx

All I did was go online and sign up on the website for your pension and you can see what you have coming. Did it all online and pick what I wanted. If you give your wife a survivor's income there's no paperwork involved.
