This section holds information for people who are currently paying into the pension scheme

Who is eligible to join the LGPS?
The Local Government Pension Scheme is an occupational scheme so to join the scheme you need to be employed by an employer who offers the LGPS to its staff. If you do work for a participating employer then they will automatically bring you into the pension scheme when you start your employment. The only exceptions to this are if you have a contract of less than 3 months or are a casual employee.
