Types of Retirement for Councillors

Member Comment - Thank you for a smooth and well informed transition to receiving my pension on retirement.

You can retire and receive your Scheme benefits in full once you have reached your normal pension age.  Normal pension age for your 2015 Scheme benefits will be the same as your state pension age or age 65, whichever is later.

When you retire, you will receive a pension and have the option to take part of your pension as a tax-free lump sum.  Visit the Calculating Councillor Benefits section to find out more.
