Pensions and elders

Post by JohnL83 » January 12th, 2019, 10:53 am

Is there a way to retire elder sims who are "new" to the game so that they have a pension? I don't see this option anywhere and when I created my town I of course added a few elder sims. I'm not worried about the ones who live with working family members, but there are a few who live alone or only with their elder spouse and I'd like them to have a little money coming for retirement, but when I retire them at city hall none of them get any money and I don't see an option for retirement level or pension level, only "end pension" which none of my single elders seem to have. For right now I had them fill the part time jobs, but really I'd like to have them just be retired and taking it easy in their elder years. I know I could just give them funds, but I like the idea of them getting a regular paycheck, even if it's only a small amount.

Could you enroll them in a career, set them up to a higher level, then select the 'retire' option? That's the best way (I think) for them to get the regular pension.

I may try this, but I was hoping for an easier fix if there is one.

If I remember correctly the pension is based off the level they were at when the retire from their career. I can’t think of an easier fix than what Missy suggested.

It's pretty straightforward to do and doesn't take a minute. You can add the career with MC, change the level, then simply retire them. It's the only way I can think of that will give them regular pension payments. :) And yes, the payments are tied to the level they're at in their career when they retire. So if you want them earning quite a fair amount per day with a pension, you might want to cheat them up to around Level 8+ of a career.

Thank you! I was thinking they actually had to work in that job a few days or something. Sorry but I'm a bit thick at times. :-)
I tried this and it worked beautifully.
