Your Local Government Pension Scheme

Local Government

Stock markets

On 16 March 2020 the Scheme Advisory Board (SAB) to England and Wales published a message about the fall in stock markets and the LGPS. They wish to reassure members. Please view the message on the SAB website.

McCloud ruling

The government confirms that you do not have to make a claim for your pension benefits to be brought in line with this ruling. Many members will not see an increase in their pension benefits and any increase is likely to be small. We will keep you updated.

Woodford investment

The Kent Pension Fund has investments with the Woodford Equity Income Fund. You may have seen articles about this in the press recently. View the Kent Pension Fund - Woodford Equity Income Fund statement. Current, deferred, pensioner and dependent pensioner members of the Kent Pension Fund should be reassured this will not affect their pension entitlement.

The Local Government Association (LGA) has produced 7 videos. They are about the Local Government Pension Scheme (England and Wales). Each video is about 2 minutes long. View the 7 Pensions Made Simple videos.

The State pension is paid in addition to your LGPS pension. You can find information about your State pension at GOV.UK.

If you need to report the death of a member of the LGPS please complete the Notification of a deceased scheme member form.
