This study provides a Ugandan perspective on the influence of demographic factors on retirement planning
and the socio-economic status of civil servants. The study collected data from 236 pensioners using a
questionnaire survey. The demographic factors included gender, marital status, age, income, and
educational level. Using multiple regression, the study concludes that there is a low predictive influence of
demographic factors on retirement planning and socio-economic status. Only educational level and
monthly income have significant influences on retirement planning and the socioeconomic status of the
retirees. This study offers a solid ground for increasing civil servants’ salaries in Uganda. Also, the
government may consider identifying resources for the professional development needs of civil servants.
