About the LGPS

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK.  It is a nationwide pension scheme for people working in local government or working for other types of employer taking part in the scheme. 


The LGPS is administered locally through regional pension funds.   The rules of the scheme are set out in law.  You can view the current scheme regulations on the LGPS regulations and guidance website.
