Retirement plan for employers


This plan is intended to provide a framework for supporting a retiring employee. It outlines the steps that should be taken to ensure a smooth transition for both the employee and the company.


The goals of this plan are to:

  • Provide the employee with the resources they need to plan for retirement.
  • Help the employee to transition smoothly out of their role at the company.
  • Maintain a positive relationship with the employee after they retire.


The following steps should be taken to implement this plan:

  1. Meet with the employee to discuss their retirement plans. This meeting should be held at least 6 months before the employee's retirement date. The purpose of the meeting is to get an understanding of the employee's financial situation and their retirement goals.
  2. Provide the employee with information about retirement planning resources. This information can include retirement calculators, financial planning tools, and resources on government benefits.
  3. Help the employee to transition out of their role at the company. This may involve providing training for their replacement, or simply helping them to wrap up any loose ends.
  4. Maintain a positive relationship with the employee after they retire. This can be done by keeping in touch with them, inviting them to company events, or offering them opportunities to volunteer their time.


By following these steps, you can help to ensure a smooth and successful retirement for your employee.

Additional Information

In addition to the steps outlined above, there are a number of other things that you can do to support a retiring employee. These include:

  • Offer a retirement party or celebration. This is a great way to show your appreciation for the employee's service and to wish them well in their retirement.
  • Provide a retirement gift. This could be anything from a simple token of appreciation to a more substantial gift, such as a financial contribution to the employee's retirement savings.
  • Be flexible with the employee's work schedule in the lead-up to their retirement. This could involve allowing them to work part-time, telecommute, or take on less demanding tasks.
  • Offer to help the employee find a new job after they retire. This is not always possible, but it is a thoughtful gesture that could make a big difference.

By taking these steps, you can show your retiring employee that you value their contributions and that you are committed to helping them succeed in their retirement.
