Hi everybody,
Just joined group. Looking for some advice on ill health retirement. I will be 55 in January 18 and worked for local authority for 19 yrs. Don't know how to go about starting this process. Any advice would be much appreciated.

hi curly, I too had to retire due to ill health as well as oa, not sure what help you need but would be pleased to help if I can. I notice there is a topic on benefits that you may find helpful. it is a minefield when you retire before your time so hope you get the help you need. I know I was very upset because I loved my job of 20 yrs but it was the best thing for me to do.

Hello, there's a board on here entitled Benefits and Working Matters forum, I am sure that a read through some of the threads on there may be helpful as quite a few on here are facing or dealing with the same situation as yourself. I retired a while ago now, in my early 50s, but being self-employed it was a very easy thing to do. I don't miss working in the slightest, the extra stress and bother was far from helpful in managing my conditions. I wish you well. DD
