TOPIC: transfer date

transfer date 6 years 4 weeks ago #74017

Looked at the transfer dates from IB to ESA. I reach pension age in July 2014 (just missing the March deadline). How long are claiments waiting for their medicals - are they more or less due on their next examination date - is this the case in practice with most members (mine is spring next year) or are they earlier or later than this. Any replies welcome on this topic. :(

Unfortunately, what appeared to be an ordered process has proved otherwise :(

The reality is that most are being tranferred on time, but a significant minority are being tranferred either early or late, the bottom line is that you really cannot preempt when it will happen.

Why not just go onto Pension Credits and save all this stuff? I had a job, SSP ended and when I phoned to see what to do next was told to phone them. I don't know if the fact of my partner being older than I and was on Pension Credits due to my ill health, made any difference but I think not ...

unfortunately cannot claim pension credit until I'm 62 due to changes in pension age (had a letter saying so) which is July 2014.
