I gave 3 months official notice. But my boss knew I was going to retire a good 6 months before that. I didn't get any "new significant work" once I gave my official notice but I did start a formal knowledge transfer to my replacement and took about half the remaining time as vacation. I just eased into retirement and said goodbye on good terms.

When I started at the Mega Corp in 1979 there was a marketing manager they wanted to leave/retire. At that time there were not job eliminations. Over time they took away his people, his secretary, his projects, travel, etc. He had an office with a door but little furniture. Everyday he would come in dressed in a suit and with a briefcase. He would shut the door, open his briefcase, and proceed to read newspapers and magazines for the next 8 hours. He did this for a couple years until he was ready to leave. I always remembered that.
They should have moved him into the basement and taken his red stapler.
