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.
