Customer Question

I worked for Albertsons, Safeway, Mayfair and Lucky Market in King County, Seattle area from 1974 to 1981. I think I had enough hours to use toward retirement but was told you needed 10 years. I thought the law changed in 1974 to 5 years vested. I want to know the answer to this please.

Unfortunately, that is not correct. The vesting changed to 5 years on January 1, 1989. For more information, click on the link below:
