For members of the Local Government Pension Scheme in England and Wales

Will the changes apply to me?

This news article was published on 24 Jan 2022

We understand that the changes will apply to members who:

  • were in service on or before 31 March 2012
  • have service after 31 March 2014, and
  • do not have a disqualifying break. A disqualifying break is a period of more than five years when you were not a member of a public service pension scheme.

If you left the LGPS before 1 April 2014, you built up benefits in the final salary scheme only. These changes will not affect your pension.
