Hello everybody, I come seeking advice again! A bit of background: I had decided to postpone my retirement from this July to December 2020 because I thought the TP would close o wouldn't be able to cope with a reduced staff etc. I will be 59 in a week's time and always intended to take AAB and go back for one year (for personal reasons I need to access my lumpsum). However , my headteacher, although amenable to me retiring and being re-employed wants me to make 10th July this year my last day of employment(the school's lawyers have recommended a week's break rather than one day because of something to do with redundancy claims if being re-employed by the same employer) My Dilemma: Have I got enough time to start the proceedings now? In other words is 5/6 weeks long enough for the TP to process my application? Thanks in advance to anyone who has any experience of a 6 week or less turn around!
