Early retirement for ill health

If during your time as a teacher, you become ill and are unable to work, you can apply for early retirement for ill health. In this article, we summarise information from Teachers’ Pensions and the DfE.

Teachers’ Pensions

Teachers’ Pensions is the organisation responsible for administering the scheme on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE). You can sign up as soon as you start teaching and receive a Teachers’ Pension number.
