Hi All. I am in the middle of applying for ill health retirement. Today I received an email from my LA HR department saying that they were going to fill in section 10 of the retirement form. They attached a breakdown of what I would receive. (I am less than two years off my retirement date.) I was shocked to see that if I succeed with my ill health retirement then my underfunded school are expected to contribute to my pension. This is just over £2000 a year. They also have to contribute to my lump sum. They will have to pay this £2000 every year. I feel very bad about it as it is taking money from the school and they really need it. Is there anything I can do about it? Has anyone got any experience of this? I am thinking that maybe the LA could pay it. I have written to my union for their thoughts but no reply yet. Thank you.
