Thanks.”

What I don’t understand is a post-retirement clause against him, at age 59, because the public administration compulsorily places only employees who have gained the right to early retirement at age 65.. Voluntary office retirement, on the other hand, is available to employees who are at least 62 years old. Those who have accumulated requirements to access early retirement, but only in the event of a redundant situation.
