Typical questions

When can I take early retirement?

Your early retirement age depends on your date of birth. See an overview of early retirement ages.

You are not entitled to early retirement benefits until you have reached early retirement age, but you can opt to defer early retirement beyond that date.

Am I entitled to early retirement benefits if I am unemployed?

Yes, if you have worked for at least 1,924 hours during the last three years before reaching early retirement age.

1,924 hours correspond to one man-year, i.e. a year’s work for one full-time employee. Read more about qualifying for early retirement.
