Deferred member (no longer paying in)

This area is for members that:

  • have left or opted out of the LGPS, and
  • have more than 2 years membership, and
  • are not in receipt of their pension yet.

Find out about the leaver process

Register or log in to member self service to access a summary of your pension account. You can use projection calculators, update your address, and change your beneficiaries.

Your benefits are held in the LGPS until either:

  • you decide to transfer them to another pension arrangement, or
  • they are due for payment.

Your deferred benefits increase each year with the cost of living. We send a deferred benefit statement to your home address every summer. It tells you the value.

If you are entitled to deferred benefits, you cannot receive a refund of your contributions. If you have less than 2 years membership in the scheme, you may be entitled to a refund. We will write to you to let you know.

Please keep us updated if you move. Use member self service to change your address or complete the change of address form
