Document When can I claim my Preserved Rights pension benefits?

You can retire and claim your Preserved Rights benefits without reduction for early payment once you reach the Normal Pension Age (NPA) for the section of the Scheme your preserved rights are held in.

If you have 1995 Scheme membership, your NPA for that scheme is 60. If you have Special Class/MHO status and you meet all normal eligibility criteria, you can still claim your 1995 benefits at 55 without reduction as long as you have been in a Special Class post for the whole of the last five years of pensionable employment, or for an Mental Health Officer (MHO) you must have at least 20 years pensionable employment as an MHO and be in an MHO post on the date of retirement.

If you have 2008 Scheme membership your NPA for that scheme is 65.
