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

Tax relief

If you earn enough to pay tax, your LGPS contributions will attract tax relief when they are deducted from your pay.

There are restrictions on the amount of tax relief available on pension contributions. If the value of your pension savings increases in a year by more than the standard annual allowance, you may have to pay a tax charge. Most people will not be affected by the annual allowance. You can find out more about Tax and your pension.
