A Retirement Letter is a formal notice prepared by the employee and sent to their employer to inform the latter about their plans to leave the job. A letter of this kind will not only serve as the official notice of the upcoming resignation but also gives the company a heads-up required to replace the employee since the search for the appropriate substitution may take a long time.

A Letter of Retirement is usually brief - it does not exceed one page, refers to the Employment Contract signed by the employee in the past, and proposes further communication in case the employer experiences difficulties when looking for a new hire. Greet your boss by name or salute the human resources department manager if you know who will be the one to read your letter, write down your name, tell the recipient this document serves as the notification of your desire to leave the company since you want to retire, indicate the date your retirement becomes effective, and sign the letter. If you have had a positive relationship with your employer, you may also add you have enjoyed your time with the organization and wish them all the best.
