Can I choose to retire and draw my pension benefits after my Normal Pension Age?

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

If you choose to carry on working after Normal Pension Age you will continue to pay into the LGPS, building up further benefits. When you eventually retire you will receive your pension unless you choose to delay drawing it.

You must draw your pension by no later than age 75.

As you will be drawing your pension after your Normal Pension Age, your benefits will be paid at an increased rate, with your pension being increased by 0.010% for each day your benefits are drawn later than your Normal Pension Age and your lump sum increased by 0.001%.
