My pension

All pensions in payment or built up before April 2015 are protected.  If you were a contributing scheme member your pre-April 2015 pension will still be based on final salary at retirement and the current Normal Pension Age.
 
If you are in receipt of a pension or left with a deferred pension these are not affected.  However, if you have rejoined the Scheme or do so in the future, there is a change to the benefits due if you die while in service.
 
 
 
Future Scheme Cost Management
 
If the costs of the LGPS change beyond certain limits still to be agreed, there will be negotiations between unions, employers and government about how to meet those cost changes.
 
 
Pension Protection on Transfer
 
LGPS members who are compulsorily transferred will be able to retain membership of the Scheme in most cases.
