Some people have a protected pension age as part of their scheme. Before 6 April 2006 some people had the right to start taking their pension before the normal minimum pension age. This is specific to a particular registered pension scheme. For example, someone could have a protected pension age of 50 under one scheme and a protected pension age of 52 under another pension scheme.
