My contract stipulated that I could retire at 60. Could have waited until 65 if I wished.Interesting post. Can I ask a couple of questions; how did you manage to retire at 60 in the health service ? Was it on ill health grounds ? When will you get your lump sum and HSE pension do you have to wait for both til 65? Also how have the rules changed for post 2004 entrants ? Sorry I'm clueless about pensions but would also like to get out early at 60. Don't fancy living on welfare or working til 65. Will have around 33 years service at 60 but was only made permanent in 2007.
As an A1 PRSI payee, mine is a Co ordinated pension. No issues with lump sum or pension, an approximate wait of 8 weeks. Hope that clarifies it a little for you.
