Employer responsibilities

As an employer, you will play a big role in the administration of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), your duties and the actions that you need to take are set out in the employer responsibilities (PDF, 172.3 KB). Any under collection of contributions, or errors in the calculation of benefits which have arisen because of the provision of incorrect information, could mean that your employer contribution rate will be assessed incorrectly at the valuation of the Kent Pension Fund.

There is an Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure for scheme members who are dissatisfied with the award of their benefits or the way in which it has been handled, this can result in an appeal to the Pensions Ombudsman.
