The Department has a normal retirement age of 60, regardless of grade or job title. The one exception is the three Security Guards who have a right to retire at age 65 in line with the terms of service of their previous employer, following their transfer to the Department under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981. The retirement age for the Senior Civil Service is determined by the Cabinet Office and is currently 60.
