Bunch of keys on a rack

If you're joining the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) for the first time, returning to us after a break, or joining us from being an LGPS member in a different part of the country, we'd like to welcome you to our fund. 

As a new joiner there's plenty of information you need to know regarding your membership with us and the security we can offer you whilst working, as a deferred member and also in retirement.

This section has information for our new joiners on:

  • the benefits of being a member of our scheme
  • the types of workers and job holders who are eligible to join our scheme
  • transferring in any previous pension rights

An in depth guide for LGPS employees is also attached to this page for your information.
