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

Employer contributions

Your employer pays the balance of the cost of providing your LGPS benefits. Every three years an independent actuary calculates how much your employer should contribute to the Scheme, after taking into account investment returns. The amount will vary, but on average employers will pay two thirds of the Scheme’s costs, with employees paying one third.

You can Contact your pension fund to find out exactly how much your employer contributes.
