Is [STRIKE]that[/STRIKE] this sentence correct?
I will retire when I will be 60.

Welcome to the forum. Remember to capitalise the first word of every sentence and the word "I" (first person singular).

The correct sentence is "I will retire when I am 60". Study the use of the present tense to indicate the future in your grammar book.
