Employer-financed retirement benefits schemes: ill-health and disablement

[Notice: the guidance on this page should be read with the notice at the top of EIM15015]

There is no charge on a payment made in respect of ill-health from an employer-financed retirement benefits scheme because it is not a ‘relevant benefit’ (see EIM15021) and only ‘relevant benefits’ from such schemes are taxed (see EIM15015).

Such a payment will be chargeable only under Section 401 ITEPA 2003 subject to any claim to the disability exception (see EIM13610).
