Staff alert: urgent - retirements during December 2021/early January 2022

To All Staff,

In order to ensure that payment of your pension is not delayed due to pay deadlines over the Christmas and New Year period, it is necessary for HR Services to request advance notice, from Officers seeking to retire, in the month of December 2021 or during the first two weeks in January 2022.

If you intend to retire during the period outlined above, you should:

  • Resign your position as normal (by giving formal written notice of your intention to retire to your LHR Unit via your Head of Division)
  • Submit a completed Exit Form to HRSS, by creating a an Exit Management Case through the online Case Management System (CMS)
  • Complete all required Retirement Forms and attach them to your Exit Management Case.

To ensure your pension is processed in time to meet the Christmas/New Year pay deadlines, your Exit Management Case must be submitted, with all completed Exit and Retirement Forms attached, no later than Monday, 15 November 2021.

There is a Retirement Pack Information Guide available on our Portal, to assist you in completing your Retirement Forms and/or you can email us with any queries you may have at
