Retirement Pension Procedure and Guidelines

The HR Division have revised the College’s Retirement Procedure to reflect the Government’s removal of the Default Retirement Age (DRA) with effect from 1 October 2011, following a six month transitional period, and have produced a Retirement Pension Procedure and Guidelines.

The removal of the DRA means that the College will no longer set a date when members of staff retire.  Members of staff will be able to choose when they enter retirement on a full or part time basis.  Where a member of staff is considering retirement they should discuss their intentions with their line manager in good time.
