Scheme pensioners

1. Scheme pensioners

Our pensioners include retired local government employees, dependants of deceased former members (husband, wife, civil partner, nominated cohabiting partner or child) and people who have been awarded a pension on divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership with an LGPS member.

Pensions are taxable and are paid monthly, directly into your bank. We will issue your P60 by the end of May each year. Your P60 is a summary of your pay and tax details for the tax year. Don't throw these away as we are unable to re-issue original P60s.

If you have any tax queries, you should contact the tax office on 0300 200 3300, or by post to the address provided below. Please quote the relevant tax office reference number:

  • Local Government Pension Scheme  Tax reference 120/JZ56432

If you change any of your personal details, such as your address, the bank/building society account your pension is paid into, name or marital status, please confirm your new details in writing to ensure you continue to receive your pension.

Changing your Address or Bank Details

Even though your pension is paid direct to your bank/building society, we still need to know if you change your address. If we have post returned from your address, or your bank/building society returns a payment, your pension will be suspended until we hear from you.


For security and audit purposes you must make a written request for any changes to your address or bank details. Bank account changes cannot be taken over the telephone, by email or updated online.  If you are notifying us of a change in bank account, please also confirm the exact name(s) in which the account is held.  Send any address or bank account changes by the 15th of the month to meet our payroll deadline. To prevent unnecessary delay, remember that any correspondence must include your:

  • Pension payroll number or National Insurance number
  • Full name 
  • Name of Bank/Building Society
  • Bank account number, sort code and reference number if applicable
  • Name of account holder(s)
  • Signature

You can usually continue to receive your pension if you move abroad. Contact us to arrange this.

Remember: Registering for “my pension online” will give you 24-hour access to your P60, your payslips and will allow you to change your address details online. We will contact you to confirm any online address changes; however, bank details cannot be changed online and must be made in writing.
