My Health
 
Your health affects your ability to maintain your current lifestyle and your expectations about what you might want to do in the future.
 
The benefit you and your dependants receive from your scheme depends upon the circumstances when you (or they) claim a benefit. The value of the benefit will depend upon whether you survive to claim your retirement benefit, and how long you live after that. So, a change in your health could affect when you decide to claim your pension benefit.
 
Poor or deteriorating health, may also mean that you are unable to work through to your Normal Retirement Age - if this is what you currently intend. It may also affect how you take your pension in terms of whether you maximise any cash lump sum that may be available or whether you decide to maximise your pension as income.
