    Hi @barzo! Welcome to the Scope Community :) I am not sure on the exact answer to your question as I've not answered it before.

    I am just going to move this over to our work category where people knowledgeable about this topic can see it, if it's not answered soon I will research into it for you!

    In the meantime if you want to get to know people I always recommend talking to people in the Coffee Lounge.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Hello barzo

    If you retired medically, it's possible to return to work in the future, but there are some important considerations to keep in mind: If you retired medically and are receiving a pension or other retirement benefits, returning to work may affect these benefits. Depending on the specific pension scheme or benefits you're receiving, your income from working again may be subject to certain restrictions or reductions. It's essential to check with your pension provider or relevant authority to understand how returning to work will impact your retirement income. If you had any contractual agreements or legal obligations related to your retirement, review them carefully. Some retirement agreements may have clauses that specify conditions under which you can return to work, such as waiting periods or limitations on the type of work you can undertake. It's advisable to seek advice from a financial advisor or retirement specialist who can provide personalised guidance based on your circumstances.
