Know the rules about retirement age
There’s no set retirement age at UK. Depending on your years of service and age, there may be a few options for when you could retire:
- Retire any time at age 65 or after
Retire when you have a combination of age and years of service equaling 75
If at least 15 of your years of service are continuous regular full-time (or its equivalent) service, this is an option for you.
Phase into retirement at or after age 60 over the course of up to three years
If at least 15 of your years of service are continuous regular full-time (or its equivalent) service, this is an option for you if your department approves the agreement.
How many years of service do I have?
Check with us at any age to get your official number of years of service — it may be different than you expect. For example: an employee who worked here for 30 years but didn’t have a 100% full-time equivalency status will show an official years of service number less than 30.
