My elder sim cannot retire. She works in the hospital,she's a trauma surgeon. When I bring up the phone, just the quit work option shows up. How do i get her to retire?

I Believe That If You Started The Job As An Elder, You Can Not Retire. You Can Only Retire If You Had The Job When You Became An Elder. At Least In The Sims 3.

Elders in Pets Stories[edit source]

Is it true there's no elder stage in Pets Stories? Nikel Talk 03:59, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

It's only partially true. While you can't reach elder stage by normal means (Sims will die of old age after reaching the end of adult stage), you can age them to elders using objects such as Tombstone of L&D, SimModder or InSimenator. Surprisingly, they will work without any problems or glitches and exactly like regular elders in TS2 (they will have proper voices, proper clothing, animations and interactions, death of old age and even the life stage bar will look and work properly). ◊³Patko0770◊³ 16:28, March 15, 2014 (UTC)

Sims 3 and 4 Old Age[edit source]

How does an Old Age death work in Sims 3 and 4? What system does each game use to determine when they die? In Sims 3, I have seen some Elders die on Day 90, while other times, I have seen them reach up to 116 days. Also, how many days do the Marathon Runner challenge and Vegetarian traits add? Last of all, what is the minimum number of days the Elder stage can last in Sims 4? Trialman (talk) 22:33, January 31, 2016 (UTC)

Four years late but I do think this should be added to the article. For TS3 it's a simple percentage that scales with each lifespan (source) and I don't know the system for TS4. The minimum number of elder days I've seen while peeking with MC Command Center is 8 days on a normal lifespan. Harw00dClay (talk) 01:56, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
