Ill-health retirement

An ill-health retirement allows you to retire before your normal pension age due to ill-health. Your employer must firstly decide whether you meet the rules for an ill-health pension before you can go down the ill-health retirement process. 

It's only possible to receive an ill-health pension if you're dismissed from your job because of your health. If you choose to voluntarily leave your job, you don't qualify for an ill-health pension.
