When we receive your application for consideration of entitlement to ill health retirement benefits (AW33E) or consideration of entitlement for early payment of deferred benefits due to ill health (AW240) it is forwarded to the Scheme's medical advisers for consideration.

The medical advisers will be instructed on the regulations under which your application should be considered.

The Scheme’s medical adviser will consider your application and will notify you, your employer if applicable and ourselves of their decision.
