Gloucestershire Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)
The Gloucestershire County Council Pensions Section are responsible for the administration of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) for the 200+ employers and their employees, within the geographical area of Gloucestershire.
The LGPS is a statutory, funded, Career Average Revalued Earnings (CARE) pension scheme. As such, the scheme is very secure as benefits are defined and guaranteed by law. Any changes to the legislation of the scheme are governed nationally by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
The purpose of these pages is to help keep members of the Gloucestershire LGPS fund informed of the benefits of the LGPS. Gloucestershire LGPS members can also download information and forms relevant to their membership of the scheme.
You will also find pages relating to the financial aspects of the Gloucestershire LGPS Pension Fund including investment, governance and policy issues.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a member of the LGPS elsewhere in the UK and are looking for contact details for your fund, please use the National LGPS Member website - Contact Your Fund page, where you can search contact details for all the UK LGPS funds.
