When considering whether to retire you on grounds of ill-health, your Police Pension Authority must follow set procedures and will take all relevant information into account.

As part of this process, the Police Pension Authority must refer the following questions to the SMP:

  • Whether you are medically unfit for the ordinary duties of a member of the police force.
  • Whether such medical unfitness is likely to be permanent.
  • Whether you are also medically unfit for engaging in any regular employment otherwise than as a member of the police force.
  • Whether such medical unfitness is likely to be permanent.

The Police Pension Authority must also refer the appropriate questions to the SMP when considering whether to revise a benefit. See Review of medical unfitness.

The questions put to the SMP are answered in the form of a report to the Police Pension Authority, which it will take into account in reaching its decision. You will be given a copy of the report.
