Members as at 31/03/2014
The new Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) 2014 was introduced on 1 April 2014. If you were an active member of the 2008 Scheme as at 31 March 2014, you will have transferred automatically to the LGPS 2014 on 1 April 2014.
The pension benefits that you have built up under the final salary arrangement as at 31 March 2014, will be protected under the 2008 regulations. These benefits will continue to be calculated with reference to your full time equivalent pensionable pay at the point of retirement (under the 2008 definition of pensionable pay).
Due to the High Court judgement in December 2018 in relation to the unlawful transitional protection afforded to existing members of Public Service pension schemes, the Scheme regulations will change in due course to take account of the relevant remedy.
