Learn all about the aging process and how to retire your Sims to get Heirlooms and earn rewards in The Sims Mobile.
Playable Sims will always be adults. That means you can’t play as your Sims’ children, but you can interact with them.
How do I age my Sims up?
Sims will naturally age up as you perform actions, complete events, and gain skills in the game.
What are traits?
Traits give all sorts of bonuses to your Sims that help them in different ways. Some increase chances for XP or daily login bonuses, and others are better for certain kinds of events.
Traits give special bonuses while you’re playing, like the chance to earn more Simoleons or get more Hobby XP.
How do I give my Sims traits?
There are a couple of ways you can give your Sims traits.
Your Sims that you create as adults will have four total traits by the time they retire. Sims with the Good Upbringing trait will end up with five traits.
What’s the deal with retirement?
Sims can retire at level 16, but only if you want them to. Your Sims will let you know when they are ready to retire.
When your Sims retire, they will leave behind an Heirloom for your other Sims. These Heirlooms can be used to earn new traits, career levels, and hobbies. You can now purchase Heirlooms in the store.
Have duplicate Heirlooms? You can sell them to get more Heirloom Tickets.
But I’ll miss my Sims when they retire?
They won’t be gone! They’ll still hang around your lot so you can interact with them, but they just become non-playable characters (NPCs).
Your Sims can also be mentored by retired Sims so they can earn career and hobby XP. Learn more about mentoring and Family Events.
And when they retire, you’ll get Heirlooms from them that will help you unlock more things to do in the game. It’s a win-win all around!
Passing on an Heirloom
When you get an Heirloom after retirement, you’ll be taken to the Heirloom screen in the store. Here you can:
Not really so win win . After a Sim retires , you will have all these non playable Sims living in your house

My sim has all 4 traits but the retire option is not available. I'm on level 20. Do sims have to finish a career(reach level 10) in order to be able to retire? My sim is only on level 5 in her career. She did however finish a hobby story. i'd love to know the requirements (besides level 16, all 4 traits) because clearly that is not all that is needed for a sim to want to retire.
Edit: I have since retired my sim, it took 5 days for the option to pop up after receiving her last trait. (Sims need to have all 4 traits) I did NOT have to reach level 10 in my career.
