Early Retirement

At any time after you reach age 55, you may apply to the Trustee to take your deferred pension early.

A reduction will be applied to your deferred pension to reflect the fact that it is being paid early and will therefore be in payment for a longer period of time. 

You may obtain an early retirement quotation from BBS.

If you are unable to work due to ill health, you may be entitled to receive your pension before age 55 subject to the Rules of the Plan and the Trustee and/or Company receiving acceptable medical evidence of your incapacity.

The amount of pension you will receive is determined by the Rules relating to the Section and Category of the Plan you are a member of.
