Employers

We seek to work in partnership with our employers to administer the LGPS on their behalf.

Our Pension Administration Strategy sets out the LGPS roles and responsibilities of us and our employers all of whom have an allocated, bespoke Fund number.

Information about us, like our bank details and useful reference numbers, is available from the About us area of our website.

Two important examples of when employers can help their employees to receive the information they need from us are by supplying us promptly with Cessation Leavers Form or Pension Starter Form

Information about Discretions is available from the Guides and sample documents page in the LGPC administration resources area of the LGPS Regulations and Guidance website. 

We have issued Personal Data Retention Guidance for Employers.

To support our employers we also have a Pensions Development Pathway an Employers “How to” and a What the Fund expects from its employers calendar.
