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
Your employer lets us know you’ve joined
As soon as we get confirmation from your employer, we set up your personal account and send out a letter to officially welcome you to the scheme. This letter also includes your registration details for My Pension Online – a self-service tool that gives you 24/7 access to your pension details.
You complete an enrolment form
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.
Any time you want to opt out of your LGPS pension, just get in touch with your employer and they will arrange it directly. They will also re-enrol you every three years, just in case you change your mind.
