No, once a pension has been put into payment - regardless of the grounds on which you originally took your pension - the pension benefits cannot be altered.

The only circumstances under which a pension award can be changed are when the award payable date has not yet passed, the award payable date has passed but the award has not yet been completed, or the award payable date has passed, the award has been calculated but your employer selected the wrong reason for retirement on your AW8 application form.
