Paying less into your pension
The LGPS offers you the flexibility to pay half your normal contribution rate and build up half your normal pension, whilst retaining full life and ill-health cover. This is called the 50/50 section of the LGPS, and it is designed to help members stay in the scheme, building up valuable pensions benefits, during times of financial hardship.
You can join the 50/50 section of the scheme by completing a 50/50 form.
Your completed form should be returned the Pensions Shared Service at the address shown on the form.
More information about the 50/50 section of the scheme can be found on the national members' website.
