If you are affected by the 2015 Remedy and applied for ill health between 1st April 2015 and 31 March 2022 your application will be reassessed. You will have the opportunity to ask about the process if you have any concerns. More information about what this means and the required actions is provided below.

Information for members who have applied for ill health retirement between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2022

We have begun reassessing ill health applications for those members who are impacted by the Remedy (also known as McCloud). We are undertaking this reassessment in response to the McCloud judgement to understand whether any member who applied for ill health retirement under their existing pension scheme, would have been eligible for ill health benefits under their alternative pension scheme.

These members were assessed at the time by one of the two Scheme Medical Advisors in place during the Remedy period:

  1. 1 April 2015 – 30 June 2017: Health Assured
  2. 1 July 2017 – 31 March 2022: Health Management Limited

Each Scheme Medical Advisor had different arrangements, this is why the reassessment will differ depending on when the application was made.

The reassessment will be based on the member’s medical condition at the time of their application. The diagram below will help members determine any relevant actions depending on their circumstances.

We are reviewing each case individually to ensure members receive the right information as soon as possible.  Members do not need to take any action now and we will contact you in due course.

The reassessment will not affect your original ill health application decision.

If the reassessment outcome shows you to be successful, you will be offered ill health retirement under the alternative scheme, backdated to your original ill health retirement date.
