When can I get my pension benefits?
 
Benefits will usually be payable to you when you reach your scheme’s normal pension age.
 
Even though legislation has been introduced to simplify pensions (most of which became effective from 6th April 2006) your Normal Retirement Date is the key date. The age you are at your Normal Retirement Date is commonly referred to as your Normal Retirement Age.
 
But what if you want to retire early – or late? We also look at:
  • Early retirement
  • Retirement due to ill health
  • Terminal Illness
  • Late retirement
  • Flexible retirement
