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

Financial advice

Independent financial advisers are authorised to give you advice and recommend pension products and investment options that are suitable for you and your particular circumstances.

The MoneyHelper website provides help on how to choose an independent financial adviser.

Here are some of the things that you should think about when choosing a financial adviser:

Please do not ask your LGPS pension fund to advise you. They can provide you with information about your pension and your options but they are not financial advisers. They are not qualified to provide financial advice and they are not authorised by the FCA to give advice.

It is important that all pension scheme members remain vigilant about pension scams. Visit the Pension scams page to find out more about scams, how to spot them and how to protect yourself.
