With 4.6 million members, the Local Government Pension Scheme is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK.
The LGPS is a nationwide scheme and is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government or working for other employers participating in the Scheme and for some councillors.
The Scheme is administered locally for participating employers through 99 regional pension funds. Local Government Employers (LGE) provides this website on behalf of pension fund administrators and local government employers.
