What's Partial retirement?

If you’re a contributing member of the EAPF with at least 2 years membership, Partial retirement is an employer discretion that could give you the option to take some, or all, of the pension that you’ve built up while you continue working on either reduced hours or at a lower grade. You can apply if you’re aged 55 or over.

If your application for partial retirement is successful, you’ll continue to build up further pension benefits which will become payable when you fully retire. Any benefits you chose not to take as part of partial retirement would also become payable.

You can find more information about your employer’s rules around Partial retirement and answers to specific questions on the pension pages of your employer’s intranet.

Read our Partial retirement factsheet for more information.
