Public Service will raise the retirement age to 63 years old and offer re-employment to eligible officers until 68 years old from 1 July 2021, one year ahead of the national schedule.

“Raising the retirement and re-employment ages is much-awaited good news. This will enable officers to remain employable longer with greater certainty. As such, the need for continuous up-skilling and re-skilling becomes even more important. Officers can look forward to greater deployment possibilities to take on new roles at various points in their careers”, said Mr Sanjeev Tiwari, General Secretary of Amalgamated Union of Public Employees.
