I wish to opt out

I confirm that I have already commenced employment in the post/s that I wish to opt out of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). I understand I can only sign and date the opt out form once I have commenced employment in the post/s that I wish to opt out from, and if not, the form will be treated as invalid.

I understand that if I am already employed and have already opted out, I cannot opt out again on those post/s until I have been auto enrolled back into the scheme. I understand I will be written to by my employer when this occurs.

I understand that by opting out I am giving up the right to a significant pension benefit and my pension income will be lower when I retire.

I will read the accompanying notes about the benefits of the LGPS, however, should I still wish to opt out, I will complete and return the opt out form directly to my employer.
