If you are wanting advice on benefits you might be entitled to depending on resignation or dismissal, this is probably not the best topic. The specialism here tends to be about employment.

Hope you get the advice you are looking for.

Does your employer support you with either PHI or Income Protection? It is the same thing but under two names. You may also have these privately?

Being too ill to work does not usually result in your pension paying out. If you have a private pension (ie you don't work in the public sector) then the earliest you can take your pension, as far as I am aware, is 55. However, the size of your pension is dependent on the pot you have accumulated.

If you are not entitled to your pension at this stage then you need to apply for benefits. If you are losing your job then I would go to the Job Centre and start getting advice there as to what your entitlements are. I think you have to be dismissed to receive benefits immediately but ask there. If you resign, and I can't think why you would resign from the very limited information, then effectively you have chosen not to work and so would have a qualifying period for benefits. If you are dismissed benefits may kick in earlier.
