I have received my pensioner's card, well ahead of my official optional retirement date of 22 July.
JPA must be saluted for the being ridiculously efficient in issuing the card.
I do hope the giving out of gratuity and golden handshake money is as fast too.
With the card my mind is already thinking of retirement from the department. I'm not going to stop working but just stop working with the department.
UMK is begging me to consider working there, but there is also UDM. I am more inmclined to accept the latter, not for anything else but just because it is in KT, much closer to home.
Have to see their offers first though.
