Your Local Government Pension Scheme

Local Government

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.

Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

Information about the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) for individuals who:

  • are thinking of joining the Scheme;
  • are a current member paying into the LGPS;
  • have stopped paying in but have not reached retirement age, and have deferred benefits held in the Fund with us, or
  • are in receipt of a pension from us.

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.

The LGPS regulations have been amended in parliament and came into force on 14 May 2018. View the Key changes to the LGPS regulations and the full Local Government Pension Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2018.
