Ill Health Retirement

Post by sabre-liner »

Hi, just wondering if any forum members have been granted ill health retirement from their employer?...I'm 55 and and have paid into the LGPS for 33 years so retiring on ill health would boost my pension income. I was diagnosed with Colitis in 1996 and have had good periods of remission, but the last few years have been challenging, resulting in taking time off work...Any advice etc would be greatly appreciated.

It depends on whether they determine you would be able to have gainful employment between now and the state retirement age. If they think you can work - even part time - then it's unlikely you would qualify
