The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in Kent is administered by Kent County Council. Scheme contributions are invested in the Kent Pension Fund.
If you are thinking about joining the Kent Pension Fund as an employer:
- Read the guidance notes
- Read the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) guide for employers
- Read the employer responsibilities - information about your role and responsibilities.
It is recommended that you receive your own legal advice in addition to reading the above guidance.
If you apply to become an employer within the fund and it is successful, you must provide pension data. Therefore we recommend that you prepare for a successful outcome. Please keep the following information on a monthly basis at pension member level:
- NI number
- Full name
- Pension reference number
- Contractual hours of employment
- Employee contributions
- Employer contributions
- CARE pensionable pay - this is the pay on which the member pays pension contributions.
