Please note that under scheme rules members have to leave employment before they can claim their benefits. The only exceptions are when members reach age 75 and have to leave the scheme or when they claim part of their benefits under flexible retirement.
Please send us a Advance notification of member retiring RET1 form (pdf) as soon as a member tells you they are going to retire. We will then contact them with their retirement options, but not more than three months in advance of the retirement date.
If the member is going on flexible retirement please put the before and after salaries on the form so that we can check it is a valid application.
If the retirement date changes please let us know as soon as possible.
When you have processed the member's final payments please send the Confirmation of Retirement form RET2 (pdf) to us.
