Course objectives

For some of us, retirement is around the corner. The prospect raises questions which must be answered before we take decisions and make choices.

Every year a pre-retirement seminar is organized to help you to identify solutions that cater to your needs by making information available not only of an administrative nature of direct relevance to your departure from the United Nations, but also of a more general nature designed to facilitate your transition to the new phase of your life and make the most of your retirement.

At the end of the programme, you will be able to:

  • plan the transition from work to retirement;
  • understand various administrative formalities related to retirement;
  • prepare your day-to-day life after leaving the Organization.

Target audience

This programme is designed for the staff members who are retiring soon (0 - 5 years prior to mandatory retirement age)
