Thinking about retirement?

This section of the website tells you about the things you might need to think about if you are getting near retirement.  


You might also want to watch the short 'Life after work' video on the national LGPS member website.


When can I take my pension benefits?

The LGPS gives you some flexibility about when you can choose to take your pension benefits.  See our 'When can I retire?' section for more information about your options.


How much will my LGPS pension be?

You can ask the pension fund for an estimate of pension benefits.  You can also see our page 'How is my pension worked out?' and sign up to My Pension Online to use our pension calculators.


What do I need to do? 

See our Guides to the LGPS page for our guide to planning for retirement which tells you about our retirement process.
