    Hi, Good day!

    I worked in the company for 12 yrs. Can i get a retirement benefits?

    Thank you,

    • Hi Jocelyn,

      I don’t normally consult on individual cases, but would advise you to give more context to your question in order to receive some good advice. The most important question is : in which country did you work these 12 years ?

      This answer will drive the rest of the questions, such as: was it private or government ? Are you retiring now, or are you asking with view of future retirement/pension rights ? Or if you are based in the GCC, do you mean eligibility to End of Service payment if you leave the company ? Was there a company-provided retirement scheme, and if so, did you contribute to it ?

      With a clear picture, a compensation pro dealing with the country you worked in during these 12 years should be able to give you at least some general guidance.

      All the best,
