Thanks for your question and good evening.It is normal here for you to receive your retirement benefits once you sign and receive your severance package.That said you need to sign the release only after you have read it carefully and certainly verify with the hr that this is the case.But it is normal practice to offer the severance you giving up your job and agreeing to take retirement.So usually you are given a certain amount of severance salary pay and at that time your retirement pay begins.This is the normal way it is done but again make sure you read anything you are signing and verify that the release and other documents confirm this is the case.It always pays to read these documents carefully because it affects your future retirement.It has been my pleasure to assist you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again and good luck with your retirement.
