Getting started

One of the many perks of working in local government is that you have access to a fantastic pension scheme. If you’re eligible to join, you’ll be enrolled automatically by your employer and the payments will be deducted directly from your pre-tax salary.

How it works in three easy steps

Step 1.

Your employer lets us know you’ve joined

As soon as we get confirmation from your employer, we set up your record and send out a letter to officially welcome you to the scheme. This letter also includes registration details for your online account, which gives you 24/7 access to your pension details.

Step 2.

You complete an enrolment form

As well as notifying us of your membership, your employer will ask you to complete an enrolment form and forward it on to us. You can download the form here.

Step 3.

We verify your details

As soon as we receive your completed form, we check it against the information sent by your employer and make any necessary alterations. We also action any transfer requests you wish to make from previous schemes.

That’s it, you’re up and running!

Opting out

If at any time you choose to opt out of your LGPS pension you should complete and return the opt out form to your employer. You should note your employer will re-enrol you every three years just in case you change your mind.
