You can transfer your LGPS pension rights to most other types of pension arrangements, but before transferring, you may wish to seek independent financial advice in order to make sure it is in your best interests to do so.
You may be considering a transfer within the LGPS, or to your new employer’s pension scheme or another type of pension arrangement.
Beware of pension liberation schemes that claim to convert your pension into an immediate tax free lump sum. The people offering this service usually charge high commissions ranging from 20–30% of your total fund value.
