A Short Scheme Guide has been prepared as a user friendly guide for members, providing an informative insight into the main provisions and benefits of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). This guide must be issued to new members within 2 months of joining the scheme, and upon member request.
This guide is published annually and hard copies are distributed to each Employer towards the end of March / beginning of April. If you need more copies, please contact us.
For an electronic web version of the Guide, please see the Related Documents section below.
New Member Forms
Upon commencement within the Scheme, a Starter Pack should be issued to a New Member. This pack should contain:
- an Opting In Declaration form
- a Declaration of Previous Pension Rights form
- a Death Grant Expression of Wish form
A member should also be issued a Short Scheme Guide within 2 months of joining.
It is essential for each new member to complete a Declaration of Previous Pension Rights form, regardless of whether or not they wish to consider the transfer of any previous pension rights into the LGPS.
