Ill Health Retirement

If one of your employees becomes chronically unwell and can no longer work to their full potential, or the options for workplace adjustments or re-deployment are exhausted, then it may be time to consider ill-health retirement dependent upon the pension scheme regulations.

Ill-health retirement cases can be complex and stressful for both employee and employer, and whilst an employee may not be able to work it is not always a clear-cut case whether they will meet pension criteria. We provide an independent assessment service according to the relevant pension scheme requirements and will work with all parties to ensure we obtain all the necessary medical information to support an employee’s application to the pension board or to provide a decision against pension scheme criteria whilst minimising stress for all concerned.
