What is ill health retirement? (deferred members)

You can apply for payment of your deferred benefits at any age without reduction if, due to your health, you would be permanently incapable of the job you were working in when you left the LGPS. If you left the LGPS after 31 March 2008, there is a further requirement that you are unlikely to be capable of undertaking any gainful employment within 3 years of applying for the benefit or by your Normal Pension Age, whichever is the earlier. In this context gainful employment means paid employment for not less than 30 hours in each week for a period of not less than 12 months.
