New IRMPs approved for ill health retirements
Two new Independent Registered Medical Practitioners (IRMPs) were approved by the Pensions Committee on June 25th.
IRMPs are medical professionals, specialising in occupational health, who give formal opinions during ill health retirement cases. If had an ill health retirement request from one of your employees who is a member of the LGPS, you must ask for a medical opinion from an approved IRMP as part of the process.
If you would like to see the list of approved IRMPs pleased get in touch with us.
Before starting the process, you should read the information on our website on processing leavers and retirements.
