Training sessions for employers
We are always happy to run employer training sessions to help you understand the scheme and your responsibilities. If you feel you would benefit from training or are interested in hosting any sessions for a number of employers to attend, please contact the Employer & Communications Team to arrange.
We can provide an overview of the Local Government Pension Scheme to your employee’s to help them understand what they are paying into and the options available to them as members of the scheme. We are also happy to hold private appointments with members for them to discuss their pension in confidence. If you wish to offer this to your employee’s, we do ask that you contact us first regarding availability and give us at least 1 months notice. Please contact the Employer & Communications Team for more information.
