If you are based in France, since you have over 60, you can claim an indemnité compensatrice upon retirement (2 years worth of commissions). If you are based in another country, you need to ascertain whether you agent contract refers to French law or to another country's law. In the former case, you are entitled to this compensation, in the latter, you will have to check whether your contract specifically mentions a compensation or if this country's law makes provision for one.
