If I retire between 55 and 60 (NPA is 60) I can do so - at least claim my pension and continue working - if my school agrees and gives me a 'one day retirement'. I would like to ask about if they don't? If I ask and they refuse, what are my options? If I stay at the same place, can TP refuse to accept my application for my pension? Or agree to it, but refuse to pay it until I get a one day retirement? What if I move to another job? What if I claim my pension now, my school refuse a one day retirement, then in 6 months I get a job elsewhere? Let's say I get a job for the summer term and leave my current job at the end of the spring term? Technically I'll be paid by this school until the end of this term, then be employed by the new school from the first day of next, so I don't have any one day where I've not been employed. Any ideas?
