If you have two years' membership and a Strathclyde Pension Fund approved independent registered doctor certifies you're unable to work because of ill health, you will receive your pension immediately.

Your pension can only be paid early if your employer decides you are permanently unable to perform the duties of your job due to ill health and you are not immediately capable of undertaking other work.

The pension can take account of some or all of your prospective service to your state pension age (min 65) depending on whether you are likely to be capable of working again.

No enhancement to your actual service is granted if you have previously received a tier 1 enhancement or an enhancement under LGPS regulations prior to 1 April 2009.
