Employers' Guide to the Local Government Pension Scheme

This guide is not intended to be a detailed explanation of the Local Government Pension Scheme. It deals with the administration of the scheme in terms of what action needs to be taken in specific circumstances, for example when a person leaves or retires, or when contributions are paid into the fund.

Some scheme employers are already well aware of the procedures involved, whereas others may be newly admitted bodies or have had personnel changes where the new staff are not familiar with pension procedures. Whichever category you belong to, we hope you will find this guide useful.
