# Retirement Years Query Calculation

G

#### Guest

Trying to obtain "Years to Retire" with a query taking into consideration the
following criteria:

Criteria: If Age is >=55 and 30 years of service then 0 years remaining to
retire OR if Age >=60 and have 2 years of service then 0 years to retire,
otherwise how many years remaining to retire until one of these criterias is
met?

Presently have the following columns of information below: (as of 2007)
Years of Service Age Years to Retire
33 55 = 0
4 62 = 0
16 45 = ?
20 48 = ?

Hi -

Test this query against Northwind's Employees table. Think it'll be pretty
close. [Emp] returns current years of service while [Ret] returns the
earliest retirement age.

SELECT
Employees.LastName
, Employees.FirstName
, Employees.BirthDate
, Employees.HireDate
, DateDiff("yyyy",[BirthDate],Date())+(DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(
[BirthDate]),Day([BirthDate]))>Date()) AS Age
, DateDiff("yyyy",[HireDate],Date())+(DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(
[HireDate]),Day([HireDate]))>Date()) AS Emp
, IIf([emp]+60-[age]>=30,[age]+30-[emp],IIf([emp]>=2,60,60+2-[emp])) AS Ret
FROM
Employees;

Hey Thanks for helping out, I really appreciate it. So close, however, I
must report on remaingin years until retirement. How can have - replaced to
show 0. The SQL added was as follows ([Ret]-[Age]) AS Remaining. Any ideas?

This is the result

LastName BirthDate PenDate Age PenYears Ret Remaining
Angela 08/05/1958 06/01/1992 49 15 60 11
Richard 25/06/1965 01/03/2001 42 6 60 18
Shams 30/10/1945 28/01/2002 62 5 60 -2
Shameela 08/04/1970 25/04/2002 37 5 60 23
Simon 24/05/1951 20/01/1977 56 30 56 0

Returning to the Employees table, change the query to:

SELECT
LastName
, FirstName
, BirthDate
, HireDate
, DateDiff("yyyy",[BirthDate],Date())+(DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(
[BirthDate]),Day([BirthDate]))>Date()) AS Age
, DateDiff("yyyy",[HireDate],Date())+(DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(
[HireDate]),Day([HireDate]))>Date()) AS Emp
, IIf([emp]+60-[age]>=30,[age]+30-[emp],IIf([emp]>=2,60,60+2-[emp])) AS Ret
[hiredate])),"Medium Date") AS RetDte
FROM
Employees;

This will return the earliest retirement date [RetDte]. From there you can
add whatever refinements are necessary, including some logic if the employee
hits age 60 but has less than 2 years employment.

Hi Bob,

It's impossible, as per the new sql she can only retire when she is 67 yrs
old.

She can retire when she is 55 and 30 yrs service.

The criterias are: (retire when you have the following):
either
55 yrs old and 30 yrs service, which is the (85 Factor) Or
60 yrs old and 2 yrs service

Ex: Pratte will be 67 when she can retire, it is impossible, because she is
eligible to retire in 2017 because she will be 55 years old and have 30 years
service.

Its complicated

Carly -

Are you actually running the query?

Pratte is currently age 45 with 10 years of service.
At age 60 she'll have 25 (10 + 15) years of service, not age 55
with 30 years of service.

The query accurately reflects this.

Carly,

Try to envision the problem as follows, then proceed with developing
solutions. Consider the Switch() function (see Help File).

Based on the specified criteria, you potentially have 5 possibilities:

(1) Employee will reach 30 or more years of service prior to 55th birthday.
(2) Employee is currently between age 55 and 59 and will have 30 or more
years of service prior to reaching age 60..
(3) Employee is < 60 years of age and will have 2 - 29 years of service upon
reaching age 60.
(4) Employeeâ€™s current age is >=60 years and has >=2 years of service
(5) Employeeâ€™s age is >=60 years and has <2 years of service

Solutions:

(1) Employee is eligible for retirement upon reaching age 55
(2) Employee is eligible for retirement upon reaching 30 years of service.
(3) Employee is eligible for retirement upon reaching age 60.
(4) Employee is immediately eligible for retirement.
(5) Employee is eligible for retirement upon reaching 2 years of service.
