If you are aged 55 (50 if you were a member as at 6 April 2006) or over and have at least two years' total membership, you will receive your pension and lump sum immediately with no reduction for early payment.

Note: any gap in LGPS membership after 5 April 2006 means you need to be 55 to have a redundancy retirement.

Any enquiries regarding this type of retirement should be directed to your employer.
