Employer discretions

Each employer in the Derbyshire Pension Fund must prepare and publish a written statement of their LGPS Employer Discretions policies and send a copy to the fund.


All employer discretion policies will be published to allow scheme members to check their own employer's policies on issues such as flexible retirement and early payment of unreduced benefits. Employers may choose to develop their own policy or use our policy pro-forma attached to this page.

Further information can be found in the LGPS Regulations and Guidance (opens in a new window)

Scheme employers may also determine other LGPS discretionary controls. At the committee meeting on 21 January 2015, our Pensions and Investment Committee approved these non-compulsory employer discretions
