Can I still transfer my benefits out, even if I requested deferred benefits when I left?

Question:
Can I still transfer my benefits out, even if I requested deferred benefits when I left?
Answer:

Yes – even if you asked for deferred benefits when you left, you can ask to transfer them out at some point in the future. But if you have reached (or are close to) retirement age a transfer may not be possible. In this case please Contact Us.

Also, some schemes, including the LGPS, restrict inward transfers, so speak to your new scheme to see if they will accept a transfer and if there are any time limits.
