@MsMaeve92 Sounds similar to this: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/JTB-Retired-sims-lose-their-Retired-status-after-traveling-to/...

Wonder if it's happening on all loading screens.

@DizzyDee-K Does this only happen for you with batuu travelling or also other travelling ?

There's a more general report here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/PS-Retierees-not-staying-retired/m-p/9913753 and I wonder if it's the same.

Game says retired sims are unemployed by defualt,.but they will get their pentions.from that job if high enough.  Game only moves played sims into temperary employment options like food cart venders and other venders like though in festivals.  There is a few ex ceptions to the rule, if a players career needs co workers and boss the game will use unemployed sims first not in world than in world and only use playable if unemployed are already in that career.

 

Edit: I forgot to mention get to work and restursants hospitals and vet clinics can all use played sims, retail stores will use played sims if unemployed or was employed in the part-time retail store job.  Same goes for Restursants will use sims in the cooking career or fast food part-time job.  Both does not matter if restursant is npc ran or player ran.  Player owned restursants that are visited will get money from customers both npc and player customers that visit player restaurants.  Same as retile shops.  Vet Clinics will do the same thing as hospitals in get to work.

@Sid1701d9My sims do not receive their pensions, if the issue has removed their retired status, it's like they've never worked a day in their life.

 

If the issue has placed the previously retired sim into a career it is a seemingly randomized career at randomized levels (usually below the diverging path options). E.g. Culinary, level 4 Mixologist or Part-Time Manual Laborer, level 2 Landscaper.

 

I don't want to see my retired sims working at all. Not on a food stall. Not in a restaurant. Isn't that the point of retirement? No more work.
