Transfers

If you re-join the LGPS and have previous deferred benefits in an LGPS fund, your deferred benefits can be joined with your new active pension account. 
 

If you re-join the LGPS and have paid into another non-LGPS pension arrangement, you may be able to transfer your previous pension rights into the LGPS.

You only have 12 months from joining the LGPS to link up or opt to transfer your previous pension rights, unless your employer and pension fund allows you longer.
