Default Info for recently retired or retiring.

I am friends with a CP for American. In a discussion today he mentioned that at least in NC and PA where he was handling pilots retiring they were drawing unemployment benefits because pilots are forced to quit at 65. With the elimination of the DB plan you are not retiring. You are simply out of work at 65. American is not contesting this. He said that there is no reason a Delta pilot can not do the same. Feel free to repost this on other forums.

Yeah but to get unemployment you have to also be actively searching for other work. Even if you can’t be an airline pilot they could still expect you to apply to 135/91 operators.

This is good info if you think Social Security tax is you paying your future self, and also if you have no shame. If you fall into both camps, you can’t lose with this tip!

He even added guys were bidding to PA from NC for their last few months because PA pays a much higher rate. The company actually pays a good chunk of the benefit in most states. The issue of applying for work varies from state to state as do other rules such as length and amount.

These are probably the same guys who complain about people using food stamps to buy groceries for their kids.

Oh idk. Ive been employed 45 years. Never drawn unemployment. After that length of contributing to a system...Any complaining at cruise seems insignificant to 13 weeks unemployment after turning 65. Soecially since i expect to be looking for another job.

unless of course you are endorsing lifting the age 65 rule as a means to avoid such observed ironies.

I don't want to generalize, I understand everyone has a different circumstance. If I knew someone who applied for unemployment after retiring from a job paying 300K plus and probably with multiple millions in their 401K I would likely turn them in to the commission myself. This is beyond low.

Condoms and birth control are cheap. Even free. And abortion is legal in all 50 states.

I dont have an airplane, boat, or beachfront house because i cant afford them either.

Employers cover the costs through unemployment taxes levied on them. They can volunteer to pay actual benefits in real time in lieu of contributions, but that isn’t the default.
