You have already made a very important decision by being in the Local Government Pension Scheme.

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a high quality defined benefit scheme.

This means that your pension on retirement is worked out on a pre-defined formula and does not depend on the contributions you and your employer pay or any investment returns.

The pension regulations are complex but there is a great deal of information available to assist you, either on the website or within factsheets and leaflets.
