I’ve got service pre-April 2015 and I’ll now have service in the 2015 scheme. How will my pension be calculated?

Each period of your service will be calculated separately and added together. Your pre April 2015 membership will be calculated on your membership to 31 March 2015 and your final pensionable pay at leaving. You can see further details in the section Paying in before April 2015.

Your LGPS 2015 pension will be calculated on the basis of a revalued annual pension build up of 1/49th of your pensionable pay in each year. Then those three amounts will be added together to form your total LGPS pension.  You cannot take these pensions separately. You can see further details in the section How is it worked out?
