I left the LGPS with a deferred benefit before 1 April 2014
Your deferred benefits are normally payable from age 65, although they can be paid earlier, or later. There are three ways in which they can be paid earlier:
early payment of deferred benefits at your request, or
early payment of deferred benefits with your former employer's consent, or
early payment of deferred benefits due to permanent ill-health.
