Retirement Age

From 1 October 2011, under the Employment Equality (Repeal of Retirement Age Provisions) Regulations 2011, the University will no longer be operating a Default Retirement Age - for the University, this was 30th September following an individual's 65th birthday.

Staff wishing to retire should now do so in accordance with their normal contractual notice period, which will range, dependant on staff category, from one to three months.

To ensure that Pension benefits are available at the date of retirement, staff are encouraged to seek information on their pension benefits as early as possible and to provide at least three months notice of their intention to retire in accordance with "Leaving Employment" details which can be found by clicking here.

If you require further advice or guidance in relation to the above, please contact the Personnel Department.
