Retirement based on age

As the pensionable age is approaching, it is a good idea to begin planning for your retirement. Start planning well in advance and familiarise yourself with all the different options available.

You can retire on old-age pension once you reach the lowest pensionable age for your age group. If you are looking to reduce the amount you are working already before you retire, then partial early old-age pension may be a suitable option for you. Elo can help with your pension planning to find the best alternative to fit your life situation.
 

Old-age pension

The pensionable age for old-age pension is determined by the year in which you were born.

You can retire on old-age pension at the lowest pensionable age for your age group or you can opt to apply for pension at a later age, whereby you will receive an increase for the deferred retirement.   

Partial early old-age pension

You are eligible to begin withdrawing part of your accrued pension when you reach the age of 61.

Partial early old-age pension enables you to lighten your workload before you retire. If you want, you can also continue working as usual and receive pension in addition to your other earnings.
