Definition of "Multiple retirement ages"
Arrangement by which an employee can retire and receive full benefits without reduction, or reduced benefits subject to a penalty. These ages can be classified in the following manner:
- normal retirement earliest an employee can retire and receive full benefits, having reached a minimum age with a minimum number of years of service.
- early retirement earliest an employee can retire, having reached a minimum age and a minimum number of years of service, but with a penalty in the form of a reduction in benefits. The reduction is usually a percentage of benefit subtracted for each month of retirement earlier than the normal retirement age.
- deferred retirement work beyond the normal retirement age. This may or may not result in an increase of benefits.
