Councillors' Pensions

Please note, from 1 April 2014 councillors in England are unable to join the LGPS. Those councillor members in England who were in the scheme on the 31 March 2014 were able to remain in the scheme until the end of their current term of office but were not able to rejoin the LGPS in any subsequent term of office in which they serve.

Councillors in Wales continue to have access to the LGPS from 1 April 2014. To view an introductory leaflet which gives you a brief outline of the main benefits of the scheme and explains what you pay in and what you can expect in return click here.
