Retirement age

Posted by:Payroll On Time onApril 18, 2016

Default retirement age (formerly 65) has been phased out – most people can now work for as long as they want to.

Retirement age is when an employee chooses to retire. Most businesses don’t set a compulsory retirement age for their employees.

If an employee chooses to work longer they can’t be discriminated against.

However, some employers can set a compulsory retirement age if they can clearly justify it.

It’s an employee’s responsibility to discuss when and how to retire with their employer. This could include phasing retirement by working flexibly.
