A retirement is an important date in a life since it marks the end of a busy professional career. At the heart of a set of sometimes exhausting procedures, it is essential to choose the right day of departure. Indeed, this can have a major influence on the amount of compensation received. In some cases, it is then preferable to postpone his departure by a few months. Here are some tips to avoid last year’s trap.

To calculate your retirement, it is essential to have received a gross remuneration of 150 times the hourly minimum wage in order to validate a quarter of retirement. However, during your last year of work, the validation is no longer carried out according to this principle, but on the rule of the date of termination of the account. Thus, in the event that the departure takes place during the term, you will have to work until the end of it, if you want it to be counted for your retirement.

The account termination date rule must then be known to select the best possible retirement date. The last year before your retirement, it is thus not possible to validate more quarters than full quarters have elapsed. Therefore, you will absolutely have to retire from April 1 if you want to contribute an additional quarter. To obtain two, three or four additional quarters, you will have to wait respectively for July 1, October 1 and January 1 of the following year.
