50. I WILL NO LONGER BE IN ACTIVE SERVICE ON 01/01/2020 (ART. 42c OF THE STAFF REGULATIONS ‘ON LEAVE IN THE INTEREST OF THE SERVICE’), BUT I WILL ONLY OFFICIALLY BE RETIRED IN 3 YEARS’ TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO JOIN HOSPI SAFE: DOES THE 6-MONTH RULE APPLY TO MY NOW OR WOULD IT BE BETTER FOR ME TO WAIT UNTIL 2020 OR WILL IT STILL BE POSSIBLE TO JOIN UP THE OFFICIAL DATE OF MY RETIREMENT?

The EFFECTIVE date of your retirement will be the official date when you cease working in the Institutions.  CIGNA asks “I confirm that I will be in active service for at least another 6 months”, you should answer affirmatively.

Up until 31/12/219 a medical questionnaire is still required by CIGNA.  This will no longer be the case as from 01/01/2020 for those joining within 6 months of retirement (but there will be a waiting period of 2 years as opposed to 1 year at the moment).
