October 4, 2014, I received an Identification Card from the University of the Philippines Manila that indicates my current title as a “Retiree.” See below.
Below is my Identification Card prior to January 31, 2014, the official date of my retirement. In this ID, I have a title of “Faculty.”
July 2014, I received an invitation from the Department of Surgery of the UPM-UPCM-PGH. I was addressed as Retired Faculty of Surgery.
The above documents indicate that I am a RETIREE starting January 31, 2014, the date I reached 65 years old.
Aside from UP Manila, I am also a Retiree from the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center as of January 31, 2014 and a Retiree from the Administration of Manila Doctors Hospital as of April 24, 2014.
Merriam-Webster defines retiree as “a person who has permanently stopped working in a job or profession.”
Free Dictionary defines retiree as a “person who has retired from active work life.”
For me, I have wholeheartedly accept the title of “Retiree”. However, I have resolved to be a productive Retiree, at least for the next 10 years, up to 2024.
