When can you retire?

The age at which you can retire will depend on many variables.

Our goal is to help gauge how far, or how close you are to a number that works for you.

The ability to access your pension will likely have a huge bearing on when you can retire. Different arrangements can be accessed form various ages.

1) Company Pension Plans: These benefits can be accessed from age 50 onwards if you have stopped working in that particular employment.

2) Personal Retirement Savings Account (PRSAs): An individual can take retirement benefits from a PRSA at any age between age 60 and 75. You do not have to stop working to access your benefits.

3) Personal Pension Plans: Individuals with Personal Pension Plans can take their retirement benefits at any age between 60 and 75. Again, you do not have to stop working to access benefits.

If you’re unsure what pension arrangement you have, we can assist and lay out your options.

What options are available when you retire?

As you approach retirement, it’s vital you choose the course of action most suitable to your needs.

A wrong decision at this point could have a significant negative impact on your retirement income.

You’ll likely have the choice of a tax-free lump sum and monthly/annual income so it’s important you make the right decision.

At retirement, you’ll likely be entitled to:

  • A lump sum, based either on your final salary and years service. This is known as the salary and service route.
  • A 25% tax-free lump sum
  • Depending on the method you choose, the balance can be placed in an Approved Retirement Fund (ARF) or used to purchase an Annuity.

However, it is always worth consulting with a Qualified Financial Advisor before taking any action.

Every individual situation is different and should be treated as such. Remaining in the occupational scheme may be a better fit for your financial situation.
