Currently employed and contributing to the Local Government Pension Scheme
In this section:
If you have just joined the Local Government Pension Scheme and you want to find out more about how the scheme works, please visit the national members' website.
If you have pension rights with another pension scheme (including other LGPS funds) or another pension arrangement, you may be able to transfer these into the LGPS. You only have 12 months from joining the LGPS to opt to transfer any other pension rights.
To investigate a transfer of other pension rights, please download and complete the Other Pension Rights form and return it to us. Transferring your pension rights is not always an easy decision to make, and you may wish to seek the help of an independent financial adviser.
The LGPS provides life cover for active members of the scheme of three times your pensionable pay. In order that your intention can be taken into account should a lump sum death grant become payable, you should complete an Expression of Wish form.
