Question of the month

Question

I'm thinking of retiring... how long does it take to arrange everything?

Answer

We have recently come up with some new ideas for our website, to try and help members understand the stages involved in various processes. These include:

  • Current members retiring
  • Deferred members retiring normally
  • Deferred members retiring early on ill health
  • Transfers

In each case there are various stages to go through - and rather like a journey, in some cases it all goes smoothly, and in other cases, the journey is delayed somewhere along the line.

Here is the page with the various 'journeys':
