Retirement on the grounds of ill health

Full details of the University’s policy on long-term absence due to ill-health can be found within Managing absence from work due to ill-health.

In cases where an employee’s long-term ability to work is likely to be significantly affected by ill-health, the employee may become eligible for ill-health retirement under the terms of the pension scheme of which they are a member.

The ill-health provisions and the procedures for ill-health retirement differ slightly between pension schemes.

Human Resources will provide detailed information (and assistance in making an application if appropriate) on request.
