IELTS Writing Task 2 Sample 532 - Which types of workers benefit from early retirement

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

Some people think that having a set retirement age (e.g. 65 years) for everybody, regardless of occupation, is unfair. They believe that certain workers deserve to retire and receive a pension at an earlier age.

Do you agree or disagree?

Which types of workers do you think should benefit from early retirement?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

You should write at least 250 words.

Sample Answer:
Retirement is a crucial period for everybody’s life. Some people believe that they have to leave the job at a certain age, while others believe that it should happen in advance to enjoy their rest of the life. Personally, I completely disagree with this point of view.

On one hand, people gain lots of exposure in their relevant field before they retire at the threshold age. Firstly, a person’s late retirement creates a lack of jobs opportunity for the younger generation. For instance, government employee retires at the age of 65, and for young, it is very difficult to find a job in that area. Secondly, creativity and innovative ideas are lacking in their jobs because of their long service. Finally, late retirement could introduce medical problems to the employees that should be taken care by the employer, which is an unnecessary expense for them.

On the other hand, people believe that early retirement has several merits than late retirement. It creates huge job opportunities for young people. After leaving the job, people could spend their time with their family. Moreover, they could utilise these time for doing any social services in their local area. In addition, early retirement gives pension and other benefits from the employer that could be helpful for rest of their life. Furthermore, government employees are more befitted if they retire at an early age because of pension and other benefits.

In conclusion, I believe that people should have the privilege to leave a job at any point of time in their career unless if they are working in government organisations which have a certain age limit.
