Life after Retirement

Your Sims' life doesn't end after their retirement. They will not be disappeared, but will still stay as your elders. Elders are similar to your grandparents. They are the oldest member of your family. In The Sims Mobile, elders are Sims with maxed out traits. They cannot consider as elder just because of their longevity in the game.

Once you've decided to retire your Sims, they will no longer be playable, but you can still interact with them and establish stronger relationships. Your playable Sims can earn XPs if you interact with them. They will function as your grandparents that will teach you often about life and everything they know. That is what we called "Mentoring".

After a few weeks, your retired Sim will still bid goodbye and leave. This is the hardest part since you've established a strong bond with your elder, they will still decide to go on a separate way.

What is "Mentoring"?

Mentoring is a means of supporting and encouraging someone. It's a successful way to aid a person to move forward and develop in his/her chosen path.

In latest installation of The Sims Mobile, this social event was introduced. Mentoring is an interaction between your playable Sims and your Elder Sims. It is an event where seniors are passing their knowledge to the young ones and allowing them to earn Hobby or Career XPs.

Mentoring Requirement

The sole requirement to have this kind of social event is to have an Elder Sim. For you to have an Elder Sim, you must retire your playable Sim. Please take note that you can no longer control retired Sims, in addition, retiring a Sim will give you a Heirloom. Click here for more information about retirement.

How do you retire them
How do you retire the sims
I have a parent holding a child’s hand sign on top of my elders. What does this mean??
I had birthday cakes on top of my elder’s head so I tapped it which means I techincally moved them out. However, they still show up as current generation in my family portrait! But they’re not even in my house anymore..
Also, do NPC’s just disappear from the portrait after moving out? It’s gone..
does your elder leave the family?and if they do,do they leave an empty spot or do you have to buy it again
I’m very cunfuzzled... I try to interact with my elder sim but it’s just not giving me the option to

I have the same problem, i retire my sim and he is not moved out yet, it has already been two days, I have made other sim to interact and do event with the elder sim but the mentoring option just won’t show up.
I can't complete the Tree of Knowledge quest, because all of my Elders relationships have been blocked. I can't socialize with any of them!
My original Sims are retired and moved out. I thought I would still see them around town like I see the (now) elder friends that they had. Is this normal? I thought they would still be hanging around.
It won’t let me talk to my elder sims

Having the same issue. On my second generation and the daughter can't interact with her parents after moving them out (she could at first). Idk if they died in game bc I don't see them around town at all, or if it's a bug.
No heirloom
My retired Sim has no heirloom. Game says she completed no life goals, but she did. She got married and had kids. She also had a career and a hobby. Is this a bug?

I'd like to know the same thing. It has been happening since the Update. I've had 3 sims leave no Heirlooms even though they've gotten married, had kids, and completed events and jobs/hobbies. I'm getting eally irritated
