The Local Government Pension Scheme

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a nationwide scheme and is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government or working for other employers participating in the Scheme and for some councillors.

The Worcestershire County Council Pension Fund administers the LGPS on behalf of the Local Government Employers and certain Admitted Bodies in the administrative areas of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

The membership currently comprises 20,000 current members, 12,000 pensioners and 11,000 former contributors with an entitlement to a deferred pension. There are currently 80 employing bodies in the scheme.
