BT Tower - London

Section A

What if you can’t work?

If you cannot carry on working because of serious ill health or disability, you may be able to retire and draw your Scheme pension immediately without reduction for early payment.

You have to satisfy BT’s medical retirement criteria; if you do, then you will receive an ill-health pension and lump sum. These will not be reduced (even though they are being paid early). In addition, you will receive an enhancement to your Pensionable Service.

You can find out how ill-health retirement is worked out by referring to the Section A Member Booklet in the Useful documents section of this website.

To apply to the Trustee for ill health retirement please contact the administration team via the contact form.
