Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What would you get from the employer in early retirement? Please note this is not always an instant service and I may not be able to reply immediately. However, rest assured that I am dealing with your question and will get back to you today. Thanks
Hello, I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my query above please? I will need your response before I provide an accurate answer to your situation. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Without the requested information, I can only provide you with the following general response, which will hopefully still answer your query. Early retirement is not determined by your employer. You can retire at any age but your rights afterwards depend on your State Pension Age (in relation to when you can draw your State Pension) and also the policy terms of any pension scheme you have and what it states about when you can start drawing your pension.
You could therefore take early retirement and also voluntary redundancy at the same time as the two are not dependent on each other.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
