    Hi
    I am planning my retirement in the next 2 years and have been told that Type 1 diabetics can get a better annuity return on their pension fund because of health reasons ?
    Would anyone know what sort of increase (from standard) this may be and is there any companies out there who specialize in this sort of thing.

    Any help and advice welcome.

    i retired just over a year ago and through my financial adviser am doing good using SIPP's

    whatever you do -- don't just retire and not investigate your options to move your money where it will do the best for you.

    I was offered about 11% premium to standard on a couple of small pension policies but SIPP beat these easily.
