Retiring from the public service

GEPF members receive retirement benefits when they:

  • Go on normal retirement at the age of 60;
  • Take early retirement with the permission of their employer; or
  • Choose to retire, with penalties.  

Taking normal retirement - what to do:

When going on normal retirement, the Human Resources (HR) department needs the following documents:

  • A correct and completed Withdrawal from Fund Application form (Z102);
  • A correct and completed Banking Details form (Z894);
  • The Z583 form if the member has more than 10 years’ service and is a member of a medical aid scheme;
  • A certified copy (not older than six months) of the member's green bar-coded identity document or passport; and
  • A correct and completed Retirement Choice form.

The HR department will then complete the remaining paperwork and submit this, together with the forms the member has completed, to GEPF.

Taking early retirement - what to do:

A member can retire any time after his or her 55th birthday and before he or she turns 60 if the written permission of employer is received and the member understands the penalties, in terms of funds, of this choice.

To claim early retirement benefits, the Human Resources (HR) department needs the following documents:

  • A correct and completed Z102 form;
  • A correct and completed Z894 form;
  • A correct and completed Z583 form if the member has more than 10 years’ service and is a member of a medical aid scheme;
  • A letter of approval for early retirement, signed by the member's Head of Department;
  • A certified copy (not older than six months) of the member's green bar-coded identity document; and
  • A correct and completed Retirement Choice form.

Next, the Human Resources department will complete the remaining paperwork and submit it, together with the completed forms, to GEPF.
