Getting ready to retire - apply in advance

Starting to think about taking your retirement? It’s important to understand the process to ensure your application runs smoothly. We request that you complete your application four months before you wish to retire. In most cases this can be completed via My Pension Online.

Last year we processed over 11,400 retirement applications for payment on 1st September, so it’s important to get your application in on time.*

For more information about the types of retirement and the application process take a look at our retirement explained page.

*We don’t pay out pension benefits automatically when you reach State Pension Age. You’ll always need to apply.
