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.

The LGPS member website provides a wealth of information about the LGPS. Find out more information on the LGPS member website: LGPS Member website

You can check your state pension age: State Pension Age calculator (opens in a new window)

It's important to know that changes to State Pension Age are possible in the future. If your State Pension Age increases in the future then your Normal Pension Age for the pension you built up from April 2014 in the LGPS will also be increased.

You can find out about the effect on the new State Pension of previously having been contracted-out of state earnings-related pension schemes.
