Q. I would like to know the minimum time requirement to submit paperwork for retirement. Is it 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days from the separation date?
A. There is no minimum time requirement. However, good sense suggests that it be far enough in advance that your personnel office can review the application to make sure that it is complete and that you are, in fact, eligible to retire. And good manners suggests that it be far enough in advance that your employer can adjust the workload to accommodate to your departure.
