Your last day worked is considered your retirement date for benefit purposes.
Your last day worked is the earliest of the date:
- You retire, die or terminate your employment with the Company (whether voluntary or not); or,
- That is the first anniversary of the date you remain absent from employment with the Company (with or without pay) for any reason other than those listed in the first bullet. This includes leaves of absence, layoff, sickness or disability. However, if you are on a leave of absence that extends for more than 12 months, your last day of work will be extended to the last date of your approved leave of absence when calculating your vesting service.
