What is a Retirement notification letter?

A retirement notification letter is a formal letter written by an employee to their employer or supervisor to notify them of their intent to retire from their current position.

The letter typically includes the employee's name, position, and retirement date. It is important to include the retirement date in the letter, as this allows the employer to plan for a smooth transition and ensure that all necessary tasks are completed before the employee's departure.

Additionally, the letter may express gratitude to the employer and colleagues for the opportunity to work with them and summarize the employee's contributions to the organisation. The retirement notification letter is a professional courtesy that helps to ensure a positive end to the employee's career and maintains a good relationship with the employer.
