Paying pensions is our top priority, and our purpose is to deliver on the benefit expectations of our members by managing investments to increase our assets and by understanding our liabilities.
We administer the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) and manage over £3.5 billion of worldwide assets on behalf of 190 employers and 67,000 member records.
Your contributions to the LGPS entitle you to a standard pension and tax-free lump sum at normal pension age, as well as protecting your family on your death. LGPS benefits do not depend on how much you or your employer contribute or on the investment growth we achieve.
Our Guide to the LGPS is written in question and answer format. The guide is for general use and cannot cover every personal circumstance nor does it cover specific protected rights that apply to a very limited number of employees.
