For most scheme members, the age at which your pension will normally be paid is 60. This means your accrued benefits will be paid in full with no reduction. For those members who join from 1st April 2008 or who have rejoined following a five year absence the normal pension age is 65. In certain circumstances, you may be able to apply for your pension before normal pension age.
If you have deferred benefits, you may also be able to apply for early retirement on the grounds of ill-health. Your application must be supported by medical evidence and will be referred to our Advisers.
