The appeal courts ruled in favour of the Firefighters’ Union ,pension age discrimination claim. This means that there will be changes to our LGPS to remove any age discrimination.

If you qualify for protection it will apply automatically, you do not need to make a claim. The LGPS website has Questions and answers for more detailed info on this ruling.
