Other Retirements

The provisions for retiring on grounds of ill health, efficiency or redundancy are the same in the LGPS 2015 as they were in the LGPS 2009 except for ill health retirements. Enhancement of service to age 65 for Tier 1 ill health or enhancement for Tier 2 of 25% of service to 65, will be replaced by the same enhancement but based on the individual’s Normal Pension Age rather than 65. If your State Pension Age is higher than 65 when you are retired on grounds of ill health, the enhancement will reflect that higher pension age.
