My employer has suggested ill-health retirement – will this process be affected?

No. Upon receipt of the relevant paperwork from your employer NILGOSC will arrange a face to face assessment with the Committee doctor.  Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, you may be required to complete a COVID-19 health screening questionnaire.  Should NILGOSC determine that ill-health benefits can be paid, claim forms will be issued promptly.  NILGOSC remains fully functional for all key member service delivery functions and we will continue to deliver great service to our members with minimal disruption.
