The Local Government Pension Scheme

Thinking of joining

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government or for one of the other employers participating in the scheme. Read more about LGPS benefits in the factsheet.

Normally, you will automatically become a member of the LGPS when you start your job unless you choose to opt out. Check your payslip to see if you are paying in and if not, contact your employer to see if you can join.
