In this section you can find out what happens if you were paying extra when you take your pension. These rules apply if you:
- leave your job voluntarily and take your pension immediately
- take flexible retirement
- leave due to redundancy or business efficiency when you are over age 55.
The sections below set out what happens depending on what type of extra contributions you have paid.
Please read the Ill health section if you are paying extra and retiring due to ill health.
If you are leaving the LGPS but you are not taking your pension straight away, find out what happens if you are paying extra in the Leaving before retirement section.
