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.

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.
