Retirement Letter from employer to employee

Retirement Letter from employer to employee


A Retirement letter from employer to an employee is written by the management to inform its employee that the latter is due for retirement. In many countries, the retirement age for people is 65 whereas in many countries the age is 60. When an employee is about to reach the retirement age, he is not allowed to work according to the government. Retired government employee receives an annual pension after their retirement which might or might not be the case with a private company employees. However, an employer is entitled to inform his employee of his retirement. This letter might not be entirely official but can also be used to appreciate the employee’s efforts throughout the years. ¬†Details can be stated in the letter such as exact date of retirement and the related retirement benefits, or this letter can contain other options after the retirement such as an extension of employment with a yearly contract.

This is an official letter, and so it should be written in a formal tone keeping in mind the correct format. It can contain appreciation stories, and it should end with kind words about how much the company would miss his presence in the office.

Dear Mr. Steffens

RE: Retirement

On behalf of Grandeur Holdings Corporation, I would like to inform you that you are due for your retirement from DD/MM/YYYY.

On that day, you will be turning 58, and it is the state employment law that one can retire from work at this golden age. The company is also supportive of the employment law and hence, writes to inform you of your upcoming retirement.

We are proud to have you as our employee for 27 years. Please commence the handing over of your duties to your successor, Mr. Dan Forbes, as soon as you can. We shall compute your dues accordingly. We wish you a happy retirement. We hope you will visit your old friends in the office sometimes.

Thank you.

Respectfully yours,

Ella T. Shaw

Human Resource Manager
