Hi Martin, I can advise you from an occupational pension perspective. You’ll need to talk to your manager and you’ll need to talk to hr. You may be required to meet with your occupational health representatives too. Based on their assessment will indicate whether you could be entitled retire early on the basis of ill health. Some pension schemes will offer some kind of enhancement to the benefits you could receive. Different schemes offer different benefits, some schemes will have a different assessment process. However, as you’re 55 you can retire and receive income from your pension with the ill health application.
