If an employee cannot continue working due to ill-health, they may be able to retire early.
Precise criteria vary from one pension scheme to another, but among other things, to qualify for early ill-health retirement benefits, an employee must typically meet a particular criteria.
We advise companies when an existing sickness absence case may be applicable for early ill health retirement. We advise businesses, local and central government and institutional pension schemes and perform up-to-date medical reviews on existing early ill health pensions.
