Retirement Letters are formal letters of resignation as the age limit is a standard specified in company rules and regulations. Often retirement letters are posted when the person has reached his final work years at the organization where they work. The retirement letter notifies our higher officials about the expected date of our retirement. In some cases even after oral communications, letters are a part of the process to inform about the retirement plans in the written notification. Such letters lend a sense of finality to the entire proceedings.
The officials in the organization will be documenting these record of events for further reference. This is done so in case to satisfy any customary laws and to avoid further complication later on. Moreover, this is also a proof that you are leaving the job by choice and are not being forced. In the case of teachers, the standard age for teaching is completed, and hence, the retirement process adheres. Being in the teaching field, retiring teachers achieve great honors and prestige of becoming a senior teacher, and hence these processes are mandatory.

SUBJECT: Prior notice on retiring date
Please accept my retirement effective from 02/04/2016 as per the policies of the school administration.
I thank you for your guidance and support, and I take this as an opportunity to thank all my teachers and colleagues for their support and friendship throughout my tenure. This is not very easy for me, but I am happy that I will be with my children and family for the rest of my life.
It’s around 27 years but seems to me like it was just a few days back that I joined. I had seen all the changes that happened in the school. When I came in, there were hardly any teachers and the infrastructure was not so good. But with your willpower and the support from other teachers we managed to grow so fast, and now I am so proud that today we are the best school in the city. The School has now all the latest teaching concepts and sports facilities like basketball stadium, swimming pool, dance floor, etc. It’s the sheer hard work of the teachers and other members of the school that we are now in the position where we stand.
I am so proud to say that I am retiring from the school which has produced the best students who have become engineers, doctors and are in the top position in many of the companies.
Thanks again for your cooperation and support for so many years.
