As a new member, or even if you are just moving between employers within the scheme, we need to know about any previous pensions you have had.
Once your employer has told us you have started working for them, we will send you a New Starter Pack, which will include a form to confirm if you have any previous LGPS pension rights either with Peninsula Pensions, or elsewhere. This should be returned to Peninsula Pensions as soon as possible. If you have other pension rights outside the LGPS, that you are interested in transferring, please contact your previous pension provider and request a transfer value. This should then be forwarded to Peninsula Pensions as soon as possible.
Peninsula Pensions provides information in accordance with statutory guidelines . For transfers in quotations this is within 2 months of the request being received, unless supplied within the previous 12 months.
Please visit the Transferring in a previous pension pages on the LGPS website to for more details or get in touch with peninsula Pensions.
