The study was based on Betty Newman’s System Model theory. Descriptive survey design was used for the study.140 Government employees, whose retirement is due within one year (2018), were selected by purposive sampling. The tools used for the study were socio personal data sheet, questionnaire to assess the retirement anxiety and questionnaire to assess the factors influencing retirement anxiety. The findings revealed that retirement anxiety was correlated with financial domain (r=0.37, p=>.001), health domain (r=0.19, p=0.024), and social domain (r=0.35, p=.001). A statistically significant association was found between retirement anxiety of Government employees and experience in years ( χ2=5.45, p=0.02). Since retirement is a transition period in an individual’s life, this study has implications in nursing practice, education, administration and research.
