Flexible Retirement

Flexible Retirement

A national scheme in the UK which provides NHS staff with a range of early-retirement and partial-retirement options. Increased flexibility in retirement is important to employers due to several factors: employees are living longer and staying healthier longer; pension provisions have changed; demographic changes (fewer younger workers and more older workers); and work-force availability.
