Ill Health Retirement
Ill Health Retirement Orford
If you are disabled or have a chronic health condition, your employee must make reasonable adjustments so you can still work. However, if an employee’s health has deteriorated to the point that they are permanently unable to do their job, and they are a member of a relevant pension scheme, they may be able to apply for an ill health retirement. Everwell Occupational Health in Orford offers fully comprehensive Ill Health Retirement Assessments (IHR) for a variety of different pension schemes, so we are guaranteed to always be able to offer support.

Why Employees Need To Be Assessed
Each pension scheme will have medical criteria that an employee must meet to obtain their pension on the grounds of ill health. In order to assess your employee, we need to understand which scheme they are under and its medical criteria. The pensions office will complete paperwork and send it to us with your employee’s consent.
Once we receive the appropriate paperwork, our Occupational Health professionals in Orford will arrange an appointment where an assessment will be carried out. Our Ill Health Retirement applications are very thorough and robust, however not all applications are successful.
