At what age can I retire in France?
The age at which an employee is entitled to retire in France is 62. As soon as an employee reaches this age, they can request to retire at any time and set their own departure date.
Before the age of 70, the employer may offer the employee retirement if he or she has reached the age required to be entitled to a full pension, but the employee is not required to accept. This request to retire is sent to the employee 3 months before the date on which he or she reaches the age for full pension entitlement. The age at which an employee is entitled to receive a full pension varies depending on the employee’s date of birth.
Once an employee reaches the age of 70 however, the employer has the ability to retire their employee without their agreement, as long as an appropriate period of notice is given.
