The Local Government Pension Scheme – Employer

TUPE’s & Admitted Bodies

If you are outsourcing services and have a number of staff who will be subject to TUPE, you will need to consider obligations regarding the affected employee’s pension rights.

This will also apply to any schools moving away from the local authority and converting to an Academy and/or joining a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) or moving to another MAT. Please see the LGPS Arrangements for Academies guidance for more information.

Please do not submit any leaver forms as this will complicate the process – instead please complete the spreadsheet below with a list of the staff involved and send it to with details of the proposed new employer and transfer date:

For those employers transferring a service or admitted bodies ceasing a contract, we will also require the spreadsheet below to be completed for all active members involved in the transfer to ensure their CARE pension records are correct on the transfer date:

There is a New Employer Guide to help new employers to the Local Government Pension Scheme understand the roles and responsibilities that comes with being an employer within the Devon County Council or Somerset County Council Pension Funds.
