Ill-health retirement for deferred members

You may be asked by a former member if you'll pay their deferred benefits due to ill-health. You may also be asked by an active member who has either opted out of the scheme, or has deferred pension benefits.

Unlike for active members there are no enhancements available - you can only award payment of deferred benefits. 

If a member has more than one deferred benefit, they will need to be dealt with separately.
