You may need to make separate applications for consideration of entitlement to ill health benefits in each Scheme, using the appropriate application forms.

However, this is only where you have had a break in Scheme membership of more than five years and you have deferred pension benefits in either of the 1995 or 2008 Sections.

Alternatively, if you are a Scheme member who simply moves or has moved to the 2015 Scheme as part of the transitional arrangements, on or after 1 April 2015 and have not had a break of more than 5 years you would only need to make one application. This is because your ill health retirement benefits will be calculated based on the 2015 scheme arrangements.
