    NHS Pension forecast-Can I retire at 50?

    NHS Pension forecast-Can I retire at 50? 17th Sep 11 at 4:18 PM
    I have recently received my pension forecast and it looks like I may be able to take a max lump sum at 50yrs and then a reduced annual pension.
    I have been nursing since I was 18yrs and am now 48.
    I am eager to take the lump sum and use this as an investment to provide an income when I no longer want or am unable to work.
    The lump sum is quite a substantial amount but the annual pension will only provide me with a monthly income of around 350.
    I willl actively seek work when I retire from the NHS and hopefully secure another job.If however I am unable to gain employment straight away will I be entitled to receive any other benefits to top up my monthly pension?
    Thanks in advance
