We have suggested ill-health retirement for one of our employees – will this process be affected?

No. Upon receipt of the relevant paperwork NILGOSC will arrange a face to face assessment for your employee with the Committee doctor.  Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, they 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.
