Local Government Pension Scheme
With 4.6 million members, the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK. The LGPS is a nationwide scheme and is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government.
The Local Government Pension Fund in Hertfordshire is administered by Hertfordshire County Council and it is responsible for the overall operation of the scheme. The Scheme is not only open to Hertfordshire County Council's employees: in fact it has around 170 employers at present including District, Town and Parish Councils, university and colleges and not for profit organisations and contractors who have taken on staff from councils.
The day-to-day administration of pension benefits is handled by the London Pension Fund Authority (LPFA). If you are a scheme member and have any questions about your benefits, please contact LPFA on (01992) 555466 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
