When can I retire?

From June 2018, you are able to voluntarily retire at any age on or after your 55th birthday. However, if you retire before or after your Normal Pension Age (which is equal to your State Pension Age in the LGPS 2015 – with a minimum of age 65) your pension will be reduced or increased. There is no compulsory retirement age in the LGPS.
