..Only if you are retired through the ill health scheme..if you volunteer to retire,then you will pay tax and nics.
Employee who leaves due to one of the following circumstances. This makes you a ‘tax exempt leaver’:
You have an injury or disability which means you can no longer do your job
You are made redundant
You retire in line with our current policy on retirement for the purposes of the SIP (see frequently asked questions)
The part of the company or business you work for is sold or transferred
How do you define ‘retirement’ for the purpose of tax exemption when leaving Royal Mail?
This is currently defined as ‘resignation aged 60 or over’. Please check with HR Services for the latest definition of retirement, if you are planning on retiring soon.
