Compulsory Retirement

Retirement as stipulated in the Pension Reform Act 2004 is when an employee attains the age of 50 or the retirement age of the organization, whichever is later. At this point, the employee is able to access 100% of the balance of his/her Retirement Savings Account. This balance can be accessed either by a programmed withdrawal with your PFA or by purchasing an annuity scheme from an approved Insurance company.
