Councillors' pensions

In March 2014, the government brought in legislation which meant that existing councillor members of the LGPS in England ceased to be a member of the scheme at the end of the term of office which they were serving on 1 April 2014, or age 75, whichever was the earlier.

The Government also decided to exclude membership of new councillors in the new LGPS, which came into effect on 1 April 2014.

 

Death Grant nominations

In some cases a death grant may be payable to a nominated person(s) or charitable trust.

You can tell us who you would like to nominate via your ‘my pension online’ account, or by completing an expression of wish form, which can be found in our guides forms and booklets section.
